Chief's Message

On behalf of the men and women of the Russellville Fire Department, I’d like to welcome you to the City Of Russellville. We have proudly served this community as a career Department since 1912.

I started my firefighting career with the Russellville Fire Department in 1992. I’ve seen a lot of changes over the years but what hasn’t changed is my amazement in the quality of people with which I have had the honor to be affiliated with. The best part of our Department is the people. At every opportunity our firefighters are committed to providing Exceptional Service to the citizens of Russellville. 

During my career I have seen this Department double in size and evolve into an innovative, customer service-driven organization. In 1997, we added a paramedic level first responder program that has enhanced the Standard of Care and Survival Rates within our community. The Department has taken on every new challenge with an attitude to not only overcome, but to excel. The desire to be the best for our citizens will continue to be our driving force as we face and adapt to new challenges. We are always looking outside the box for better ways of doing business and new ways to serve. We hope that you find our website informative and easy to navigate. If you have any questions or would like to know more, please call or stop by. You are always welcome. 


Chief T. Kirk Slone
