The Kent Fire & Rescue Service
The history of the fire brigade in Kent goes back over 200 years. In 1802 Hythe set up a town based fire service. In the same year the Kent Fire Office was created and the Deptford (insurance) brigade was formed. A second municipal service was created in Kent at Ashford twenty five years later. The twentieth century saw the innovation of motorised fire appliances with Bromley being the first town to introduce them. The threat of WWII led to the formal creation and regulation of local fire brigades and the Auxiliary Fire Service (AFS) in 1938. Just three years later all the local brigades and the AFS were integrated into a National Fire Service. In the post war era fire services returned to the control of the respective local authorities.
Today the Kent and Medway Fire and Rescue Service has over 50 fire stations, 75 fire appliances and a host of other vehicles manned by something like 1,700 members of staff. The area of responsibility of the service contains more than 1,725,000 people making it one of the biggest and busiest services in the UK.
