On August 16th at 1630, FCFD was dispatched to Meghan Drive on a car on fire inside a garage. This is the picture of what was seen upon arrival. The fire was extinguished and no injuries were reported.
FCFD recently had Louisville Metro Police Department’s air unit out to conduct a training. We rely on LMPD to provide a bird’s eye view when we are conducting search and rescues in our rural area or in the Parklands. Their capabilities can help us shorten search times which equals a greater chance of survival for victims. Again, Fern Creek would like to give a big thank you the The Louisville Metro Police Department and Air 20 for this fantastic training and mutual aid!
Fern Creek would like to introduce the newest members of our career staff.
Jacob, Alex and Zack have moved over from our volunteer staff. Corey joins us from Eastwood FD and Jason is from Louisville Fire Department. With the hiring of these 5 team members we are now able to run to engine companies to better serve the community of Fern Creek.
At 12:20 PM on June 1st FCFD was dispatched to Broad Run Park in the Parklands to a child stranded on Floyd’s Fork. Our members were able to quickly respond. Our swift water team was able to deploy our recently purchased rescue boat and successfully return the child, uninjured, to her parents.
