Welcome to the Official Website for Kent Fire Department

Welcome to the Kent Volunteer Fire Department Web Site. We are located 65 miles North of NYC in Kent Cliffs Putnam County New York. Our zip code is shared with Carmel NY. The landscape of our community is primarily residential and includes the NYS White Pond Multiple Use Area (a 276-acre State park) and the Clarence Fahnestock Memorial State Park (a 14,086-acre State park) and many smaller State and town parks with hiking trails, campsites, lakes, and playgrounds. Our community is also part of the NYC Croton Reservoir and Watershed system and includes the Chuang Yen Monastery which houses the largest Buddha statue in Europe, North and South America. This brings visitors to our community from around the globe. Our district also includes a 2.6-mile portion of the Taconic State Parkway from Route 301 (mile marker 31.4) to the Dutchess County East Fishkill line (mile marker 34.0). 

Because of our district terrain, the Kent Volunteer Fire Department in renowned and respected for our training and ability to fight brush fires and have been called to other districts to assist on numerous occasions over the years. 

We are one of the few departments that utilize lime-yellow trucks which according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) are safer than red fire trucks. Our fire district comprises over 30 square miles and is served by dedicated volunteers.
