In mourning

The Fern Creek Fire Department would like to extend our deepest condolences to our bothers and sisters in blue.

The impact of her passing is felt throughout all of the emergency services and the community.

Gone but not Forgotten

On this day 4 years ago the Fern Creek Fire Department lost one of its own. Major Malcolm Jenkins was our department’s first paid training officer. He also played a lead role in developing the Kentucky Regional Fire Training Academy. Most of the firefighters on our department today were trained by Major Jenkins. It is the knowledge he instilled in us that insures Malcolm is still on the engine every time it rolls out of the station to help someone in need.
