The origin of Danville's Fire Department reaches all the way back to 1869. Since those early days when a handful of volunteers would team up to fight a fire with a horse-drawn cart, the department has evolved into a profesionally trained and well-equipped organization consisting of Paid on Call, Part-Time, and Full Time personnel. All Danville Fire Department personnel are trained as Firefighters and Emergency Medical Service providers.
The DFD provides fire protection services for both Center and Marion Townships. Averaging between 1,500 to 2,000 calls for service a year, the department continues to meet the demands of a growing community with continued dedication and increased efficiency.
The Danville Fire Department has two fire stations: Station 191 is located at 77 North Kentucky Street and is home to the Danville Fire Department Administrative Offices. Station 192 is located at 100 Twin Bridges Road and is staffed 24/7 with response personnel.
