Fort Knox is about people; great Soldiers, outstanding citizens, and wonderful families that form a bond to provide for the nations defense. Yet the post is much more than gunnery ranges, training areas, tank- filled motor pools and maintenance bays, it is also home to the federal governments most professional fire protection family, Fort Knox Fire and Emergency Service. The fire department, making over 2,000 runs a year, is responsible for providing fire and emergency protection for more than 109,069 acres including the famous Gold Bullion Depository.
Remember... FIRST IN, LAST OUT!
Aircraft Rescue Firefighting (ARFF) Training
Fort Knox Fire Department trains hard every day. One of the areas of training is Aircraft Rescue Firefighting (ARFF), which is an intense hands-on class requiring firefighters to expose themselves to live fire exercises in very realistic situations.
Wild Land Fires
Fort Knox firefighters, with assistance from several surrounding fire departments, recently battled blazes that scorched more than 12,000 acres.
Fort Knox’s memories of Sept. 11, 2001, are now set in steel. A monument set with a portion
of a steel beam from the World Trade Center was unveiled at a ceremony at Fort Knox Firehouse 1 on
Sunday morning Sept. 11, 2011, the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Fort Knox Fire and Emergency
hosted a services tribute to the victims of 9/11 and the first responders
who were called to help that day.
