The Kingston Fire Department, under the direction of Chief Frank Guido, is a combination department consisting of twenty-three career firefighters including the Chief and approximately thirty active volunteers. The Department operates out of a state-of-the-art Central Station opened in March of 2005, and provides a full range of fire, rescue, and emergency medical services.

The Kingston Fire Department is one of only a few departments of its size capable of providing Advanced Life Support within its own agency.

In 2008 the Kingston Fire Department responded to 3005 incidents. The average response time from “call received’ to “on the scene” is consistently under four minutes, resulting in fewer large fires and more lives saved. The Department enjoys a Class 4 ISO rating.

Constant training in the latest firefighting and emergency medical practices results in a high level of efficiency to provide the best possible service to the residents of Kingston.
