New Kentland Firehouse

The Kentland-Jefferson Township Volunteer Fire Department has a roster of 22 firefighters. These individuals give above and beyond, having employment throughout the community and surrounding area.

Serving the Town of Kentland and Jefferson Township, our firefighters run rescues and take responder calls. They’re highly trained in emergency procedures, which helps ensure that they make it back home safely after a day of fighting fires, running rescues and taking responder calls. Our new fire station project has had countless support over the past six years. Through various fundraising methods, this new station will be centrally located, improving our overall response time and helping meet the community’s needs. It will be equipped with ample parking and brand new offices. We’re also going to be doing away with the old back-in bays by installing drive-through bays. This will help prevent injuries to our firefighters.
