Louisville Area Fire Departments

The Louisville area has always been divided into two sections, one being Jefferson county and the other was the city of Louisville. Each had it's own police, fire and EMS services and radio systems. In 2003 the citizens of Louisville and Jefferson county voted to merge the city and county governments to form one Louisville metro government.


Today the Louisville area is still separated into two areas. The former city of Louisville is called the URBAN SERVICE DISTRICT and the unincorporated area around the old city limits formerly known as Jefferson county is the SUBURBAN SERVICE DISTRICT.


Scanning fire services in the suburban area is a little different from monitoring the fire department in the urban district. The primary difference being that the urban service district has only 2 fire departments, Louisville Fire & Rescue and Shively. The suburban area has 18 fire departments that use both career and volunteer firefighters.
