We are your trusted neighbors, colleagues, and friends, all dedicated to providing the highest level of emergency response.
The SK Union Fire District includes volunteers from every corner of our community, from each village or neighborhood in our historic town. Once, fires were fought by bucket brigades that were affiliated with various mills spread throughout the town of South Kingstown.
As our town, industries, and technology grew, so did our fire departments. Today, our District includes eight stations and stands prepared to fight fires and other emergency hazards with a well-trained volunteer force and the best-available resources and personal protection equipment. There is a Kingston Fire District that serves the village of Kingston and the University of Rhode Island.
