Kent Fire and Rescue Service - there when you need us
For just over £1.41 a week (for a Band D property) Kent Fire and Rescue Service (KFRS) provides you and your family with a round-the-clock, 365 days a year service.
We not only fight fires, but deal with a huge range of other emergencies from road crashes, floods and explosions to chemical spillages. We work hard to help families and businesses stay safe by providing safety advice.
Nick Chard, Chairman of Kent and Medway Fire and Rescue Authority said: "Local people value the service we provide and want to preserve it. The Authority always tries to ensure that it provides the most efficient and effective service it can at the best price for Kent and Medway residents. An increase of just 1.88% will allow us to maintain a good level of emergency cover while continuing to make the necessary efficiency savings in a planned and gradual way. The increase is just over 2.5p a week for a band D household, or £1.35 a year. We believe this is still good value for money for a round the clock service, dealing with all kinds of emergencies in your local area."
