If my smoke detector goes off in the middle of the night, what should I do?


You should roll out of bed and crawl to the nearest exit and leave the building. Call 911 and notify the dispatcher your address and you need the Fire Department. Once you are out of the house stay out! Today, a home can burn down in less than 4 minutes; you may be unable to escape a burning home in less than one minute. Don't take chances. Get out as quickly as you can and call 911 from a neighbor's home.



Sometimes I see fire hydrants leaking or caps missing. Why doesn't the Fire Department correct these problems?


Fire hydrants are inspected twice a year by Fire fighters. The Louisville Water Company performs repair and installation of fire hydrants. If you have questions concerning a fire hydrant, please call the Louisville Water Company at 502-569-3600.



How do I get a copy of a fire report?


The fire report is a public document and can be obtained by anyone. Reports are available at the administrative office of the Fire District that serves you. You will need to know the date and time of the fire and the correct address where the incident occurred.
