Red Cloud Volunteer Fire Department

Red Cloud Volunteer Fire Department

Red Cloud is fortunate to have a volunteer fire department to serve the city and the surrounding countryside. There are twenty-five volunteer fire fighters on the Red Cloud Fire Department.  The fire district extends 8 miles north, 6 miles south, 5 miles east, and 8 miles west of Red Cloud for a total of 182 sq. miles.  Several members of the department attend fire school each year to improve their skills and knowledge to better serve and protect the community.

Members of the fire department hold meetings on the first Thursday of each month.  In addition to their community service, the Firemen host thier annual Soup and Hamburger Feed in March and prepare and serve the popular beef barbeque at the annual Street Car Days celebration.
