Fire Department

Welcome to your Versailles Fire Department.

The City of Versailles employs a progressive and innovative career Fire Department for the protection of our community, workforce and visitors.  Versailles Fire is constantly training and working to achieve the highest level of skill and knowledge to better protect and serve you.

Versailles Fire is a combination Fire Department.   In addition to 15 Career Officers and Firefighters, we maintain a roster of approximately 25 Volunteers to serve our community.  Your Fire Department offers many services other than emergency response.  We currently certify Child Safety Seat Technicians and are happy to assist in the proper installation of your child safety seat.  We also offer a smoke detector program to assist you with the operation and check of your smoke detectors.  Your Firefighters stand ready to assist you in any way possible to make our community safe from the dangers of fire or other emergencies.
