Fire & Rescue
Kingston Fire and Rescue is responsible for fighting fires in the Kingston area. The city has 10 fire stations that are staffed 24 hours a day by a crew of firefighters.
To report a fire, call 9-1-1 and remain on the line to answer questions from the operator. You can ask for service in your own language by speaking the name in English. The 9-1-1 operators will find an interpreter who speaks your language.
Homes and apartments must be equipped with smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors on every level. The batteries should be changed once a year.
If a fire breaks out in your home, it's important to get everyone out of the house as quickly as possible. Fire officials will inspect your home at no charge and provide tips on how to reduce the risk of fire.
