Welcome to the Kemp Fire Department web site.
Kemp Fire Department (KFD) was established in 1926 to provide fire suppression for the Kemp Community. The Department is all Volunteer, and coverage area has grown to include 130 square miles with approximately 6000 residents.

KFD has one fire station located at HWY 274 and business 175 in Kemp. In direct response to area growth, KFD purchased land on the corner of FM 148 and CR 4060.  It is our intention to build a second fire station at this location.  We are actively seeking the funding required to build a second station and purchase service equipment.   

The KFD has nineteen active members in the department.  Each member receives fire and rescue training, performs equipment maintenance and routine station maintenance.  In addition to the scheduled meetings, maintenance and training, members respond to an average of 45 calls per month.  The men and women of KFD are dedicated public servants.

Continuous training, up to date fire and rescue equipment and community support are essential to the success of this department.

KFD will continue to meet all challenges with the professionalism and dedication our community has grown to respect.
If you have any questions or comments please contact the fire department at 903-498-7909.
