Campbell County Fire Dept.

Greetings from the Chief,

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.

I hope you enjoy your visit to the CCFD website. Please use the “Contact Us” link if you should have any questions or comments about our organization.

William (Bill) Shank, Fire Chief
