Fire Dept.
Earlington KY Fire Dept.



The Earlington Fire Department was formed by the order of the City Council in December 1911. The fire department currently serves a 25 square mile area and is staffed by 27 volunteers. This includes 5 officers and 22 firefighters. Chief Paul Cothran has been serving the City of Earlington since 1973, Assistant Chief Chris Cothran has been serving the city since 1989, Captain Steve Lamb has been serving since 1992, Lieutenant Greg McCarthy has been serving since 2008, and Lieutenant Nathaniel Miller who has been serving since 2003.

We provide fire, rescue, medical first response, and life safety education services to our community and the surrounding fire district which includes the City of Earlington, unincorporated areas of Barnsley and Hecla, and the Earlington Fire Protection Taxing District through a contract with the City.

We have an ISO rating of class 4 for areas within 1000 of a fire hydrant and a class 9 in areas not within 1000 of a fire hydrant. Our apparatus includes a 2001 pumper, a 1978 pumper, 2005 pumper/tanker, 2002 rescue, and 2001 brush truck.

We have been extremely fortunate in receiving grant funding from the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program in excess of $1,493,501! This funding has allowed our department to be well equipped and trained to meet the challenges of our community.
