History of CFD

Public records list October, 1914 as the beginning of the Campbellsville Fire Department. History is less clear about how the community fought fires prior to that date. Most likely, if the building was in the downtown area of Campbellsville, bucket brigades formed from nearby Buckhorn Creek or community water wells and passed buckets to and fro in a desperate effort to save whatever structure was ablaze. Homes, outbuildings, businesses, farm buildings beyond the reach of any such brigade burned to the ground. Today, firefighters along with advanced training and technology, are considered the "multi-tool" of all emergency services. From swift water rescues to high angle rope rescue calls to modern day structure fires, Campbellsville Fire & Rescue will always be ready to provide service to its citizens and visitors alike.
