The Eastern Knox County Joint Fire District was formed in early 2001. Formerly known as the Danville Volunteer Fire Department, formed in 1938, the district covers 186 square miles, consisting of the townships of Brown, Jefferson, Union, Howard, Harrison, and Butler and the villages of Danville and Brinkhaven.
The district has two stations — Station One in Danville and Station Two in Howard. The district has a fleet of 16 vehicles and one boat, which includes three engines, three ALS medics, engine-rescue, tanker, ladder, four grass vehicles, and a chief’s car.
Our mission has always been to protect the residents and businesses in our district by mitigating the impact of emergencies and hazardous situations through effective prevention, preparedness, and response programs.
