What we do

Kent Fire and Rescue Service is a forward thinking, modern fire and rescue service, with a long and proud history. Our focus is to support our 1.8 million customers in their homes, where they work and in places of education to help keep them safe – whoever they are. We are there for our customers in times of need – whether it’s a fire, a road crash or a water rescue. 

In the past year we’ve attended almost 21,000 incidents; many presenting unique challenges involving our roads and motorways, coastline, inland waterways and the busiest sea channel in the world. We work closely with our emergency service partners and local authorities; last year we attended over 4,500 incidents as co-responder on behalf of South East Coast Ambulance Service.  

Every one of us at Kent Fire and Rescue Service helps to save lives. We are one team. Together with our customers we are creating a safer future for Kent and Medway.
