The community served by the South Oldham Fire Department is a densely populated area, surrounding Crestwood Kentucky, which is 14 miles east of Louisville, KY. The Fire District covers approximately 25 square miles. A rapidly growing bedroom community represents our population of about 12,000 residents. The department protects many important assets of the community including a downtown district, growing residential and commercial areas, as well as a major interstate highway (I-71), which runs between Louisville and Cincinnati, and a busy CSX rail line. The department also protects five schools in the fire district, as well as providing mutual aid to several surrounding fire departments. The district is also in a holding pattern for air travel for Louisville International Airport, which is a major hub for United Parcel Service's Worldport.
Our Fire Station is staffed, by career and volunteer firefighters, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you are in the area, we encourage you to stop by, say hello and meet us in person. We are proud of our Station and Department and would like to show you around.
