What we do
Riley County Fire District #1 provides fire protection and emergency response to the unincorporated areas of Riley County, Kansas. We also serve the communities of Leonardville, Ogden, and Randolph, and provide supplemental support to the City of Manhattan and the City of Riley. Our primary response area includes suburban and rural areas totaling approximately 500 square miles.
We respond to wildfires, brush fires, structure fires, vehicle accidents, medical emergencies, road hazards, gas leaks, and other disasters. Our crews are dispatched by Riley County 911.
With 15 Fire Stations strategically located across Riley County along with 100+ volunteer firefighters, we strive to provide the taxpayers with timely emergency response and risk reduction 24/7/365.
Who we are
RCFD#1 is one of the largest consolidated volunteer fire departments in the state. Our members serve as firefighters, fire apparatus operators, certified medical responders, and support staff. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, have a valid driver's license and/or GED/High school diploma, as well as a clean record.
The men and women in our department come from a variety of backgrounds. Some are professional firefighters, while many others are farmers, soldiers, police officers, graphic designers, students, or retired workforce professionals.
If you are willing and able to serve and have 2-4 hours/month, we would love the opportunity to visit with you about joining our fire family. We will train you, prepare you, and equip you to serve your community in a new and rewarding way. Call us at 785-537-6333 or visit the Volunteer Page to learn more.
