What we do

Emergency response

As well as fighting fires in homes and commercial properties, Kent Fire and Rescue Service has for many years been involved in dealing with road crashes and other types of specialist rescues.

Dealing with major emergencies

We also have a duty to prepare for and respond to major emergencies at local, national and international level - including: flooding, chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear incidents; earthquakes; building collapses; explosions; chemical spillages; and the aftermath of terrorism.

Community safety

The community safety team works with local people across our different communities to help keep them safe - at home, on the roads and at work. They do this through face-to-face contact at home, work or school and through safety campaigns and publicity.

Business support

To help business owners, we have a dedicated team of fire safety officers working from four offices across Kent and Medway. They can advise on the legal requirements and responsibilities that affect premises, as well as inspecting and enforcing those rules if necessary.
