The Danville Fire Department has on-staff certified child seat technicians. We will inspect and help with installation by appointment, call 859-238-1211 to schedule. We prefer to manage car seat requests after 4 pm on weekdays because daily work assignments and fire/emergency calls still take precedence. We cannot guarantee a technician will be available for walk-in requests.
Yes, We have a limited number of smoke alarms to install. We are focusing on the elderly and families with small children. Interested parties can call the fire department at 859-238-1211 to set up an appointment.
With some notification, you usually can. We handle walk-ins regularly, but we have a better organized and more focused tour when we have some notification ahead of time. We accommodate most reasonable requests, although we do need to respect the privacy of our firefighters since they live here 24 hours at a time.
Fire hydrants are flow tested twice a year in Danville, and annually in the rest of Boyle County. This is done to flush the water mains, determine available water pressure for firefighting purposes, and identify problems with the system for repair. Testing occurs in the spring and the fall of the year.
By state law, you can only burn developed brush, such as tree limbs and storm debris, on-site. Construction materials, household waste, scrap wood, pallets, and leaves cannot legally be burned. Open burns must be a safe distance from buildings, power lines, property lines, and should not be done under extremely dry or windy conditions.
Inside the City of Danville, contact the Fire Department at 859-238-1211. In Boyle County, please contact the Boyle County Fire Protection District at 859-236-8238. No fee is involved, but an on-site inspection may be required before a permit is issued.
Applications are available from Human Resources at City Hall or you can check our job postings. You must have a high school diploma or a GED and you must have a valid Kentucky driver's license, by state law.
The same qualifications for full-time personnel apply for part-time personnel. Part-time personnel is limited to no more than 35 hours per week and not more than 1,200 hours annually. Part-time hire processes are held as needed.
No. We will usually provide a list of independent businesses that offer chimney-cleaning services, but we do not recommend or single out any particular service. If a homeowner experiences problems with their chimney, we can come out and examine the chimney for potential fire hazards or similar issues.
Sometimes during fire hydrant testing, people experience a temporary discoloration due to sediment in the water lines. In most cases, running the tap for a minute will resolve the problem. The Fire Department will publish and announce on the radio when hydrant testing occurs, so people can plan ahead and avoid issues with the water discoloration.
