About Us

Located at 1646 West Galbraith Road, the North College Hill Fire Department proudly protects an area of 1.8 square miles with approximately 9,500 citizens and responds to approximately 1700 emergency medical and fire calls annually.  Established originally as an all-volunteer department we have continued to expand our equipment and services to meet the needs of the community.  

Today, we operate out of one station with an all part-time staff consisting of a Fire Chief, Deputy Chief, six Lieutenants and 21 Firefighters. The daily on-shift staff consists of one Lieutenant, one Fire Apparatus Operator and two Firefighters. The Fire Chief and Deputy Chief supplement the on-shift staff working up to 24 and 16 hours per week respectively. 

The station houses one combination aerial ladder/pumper (called a Quint), one combination engine/rescue, two ambulances, one first response/staff vehicle and one command vehicle. The department has an ISO rating of 4/9 and provides emergency medical services at the Emergency Medical Technician – Paramedic Level.
