We are home to the Kingston Volunteer Department located in Kingston, Rhode Island.

The Kingston Volunteer Fire Department is an all-volunteer, full-service fire department providing world-class fire protection, code enforcement, and emergency medical response services. These services are provided through a highly-trained, dedicated and adaptable force of volunteers known as the Kingston Volunteer Fire Company.  The Kingston Volunteer Fire Department operates out of the Kingston Fire District (KFD).  What it means to be a Fire District?  [Learn more…]

The village of Kingston (approximately 1.6sq miles) is located in the northern portion of the Town of South Kingstown and is the site of the University of Rhode Island’s main campus. Many of the village center’s buildings are listed on the National Register of Historical Places. We have protected the college campus, Kingston residents and visitors of the Town of South Kingstown since July 1923.

Unlike many volunteer fire departments, KFD is home to twelve resident firefighters, whom after extensive training make the firehouse their home.  These young professionals enjoy living rent-free in return for maintaining “on-call” volunteer coverage, seven days a week.

We are one of two fire districts serving the Town of South Kingstown. In coordination with the Union Fire District; we provide fire protection services for a full-time resident population of over 30,000 and transient student population of over 13,000.

We encourage you to thoroughly review the public information that we provide as we are very proud of our organization, its transparency and professionalism. We have attempted to present the information necessary so that you could share our pride in this department, its wardens, fire officers and firefighters.

Welcome to KFD!  We hope that you enjoy our website.

Food can always be a good way to bond and that’s the idea at the Kingston Fire Department.
