City of Covington Fire Department

Front Page

The Covington Fire Department has one of the best response records in the state. Each year, the CFD  answers more than 1,400 emergency calls.

CFD firefighters spend many hours on outreach for fire prevention in the community. The CFD conducts fire prevention programs in local schools with the use of a "smoke trailer" that simulates the conditions of a fire and teaches students how to formulate and execute an emergency exit plan. The CFD will visit homes and businesses to advise occupants on how to design and implement an emergency exit plan, as well as how to properly use a fire extinguisher. Firefighters will also advise residents on the proper placement of smoke detectors and alarms. The CFD's contribution to our quality of life and peaceful slumber each night is beyond measure.
