Welcome to the Campbell County Fire Department
(CCFD) website. As you explore our webpage, I trust that you will gain a
better understanding of our organization and the services we provide.
The Campbell County Fire Department is governed by a “Joint Powers Fire
Board” representing the City
of Gillette, the Town of Wright, and Campbell County. Our service area
encompasses nearly 5,000 square miles and is situated in Northeastern
Wyoming. Our county produces roughly 30% of the nation's coal supply from
our open pit mines as well as significant amounts of natural gas, oil,
and cattle. With all of these industries, our fire department faces a
wide array of emergency responses.
CCFD is a combination fire department consisting of 29 career and more
than 150 volunteer firefighters. With more than 80 fire apparatus and
support vehicles, our department utilizes a variety of units to support
our mission in Campbell County. We provide fire, rescue, EMS, and
hazardous materials response services to approximately 50,000 citizens.
Our volunteers provide county-wide coverage from ten stations and eleven
wildland support stations.
The career staff serves 24-hour shift coverage based at Fire Station #1 in addition to augmenting the other volunteer stations on
their days off. Our combination system offers the citizens of Campbell
County a variety of firefighting and technical expertise by combining
the professional disciplines of our volunteers and the firefighting
experience of our system as a whole.
