The Kindred Fire Protection District is an all volunteer department. We are publicly funded through taxes assessed on all property in our response district. We proudly provide fire and emergency services to the City of Kindred and the surrounding area, as well as mutual aide assistance to several other departments.
The Kindred Fire Protection District is managed by an elected Board of Trustees. The Board oversees all the regular business of the District. The Kindred Fire Protection District currently has 19 members that dedicate themselves to the betterment of their community. Officers are elected by the membership annually. These officers oversee the daily operations of the District.
The Kindred Fire Protection District is a fire and light rescue response team, meaning that we not only respond to fires but also to other emergencies, such as vehicle accidents, farm accidents, hazardous materials incidents, and so much more.
The Kindred Fire Protection District is very committed to training. All members meet the Federal Incident Management requirements. Most members are certified bi-annually for Automobile Extrication. Several members are ND Certified FF1 and one member is ND Certified FF1 and FF2. We currently have 6 members that are ND Certified Haz-Mat Operations Level, one Haz-Mat Technician, and all other members are Haz-Mat Awareness Trained. Several members are also CPR and First Aide Certified. We also have one EMT. The Kindred Fire Protection District uses four apparatus (2 pumpers, 1 grass rig, and 1 tender) for the various calls we respond to throughout the year. The Kindred Fire Protection District operates out of one station located in downtown Kindred.
