Chief’s Corner

Photo Chief HitzfieldHello, welcome to the Hebron Fire Protection District website.  My name is Dan Hitzfield, I am the chief of the district and have been since January 2011.I was born and grew up as a resident of Boone County and still live in Boone County with my wife and two children. I began my fire service career with the Petersburg Fire Protection District and still serve there as the Assistant Chief.  I became an EMT when I was 18 years old.  I joined the Hebron Fire Protection District in 1995 as a part time employee and was hired full time in 1998.  I’ve witnessed the rapid growth to Hebron and surrounding communities and have been a part of providing an ever expanding level and rate of service to our community.

We provide Fire Suppression, Emergency Medical Services and HAZMAT for emergencies.  We also are very active in the community providing public education throughout our businesses, schools and daycares, just to list a few.  Seventy professionals make up the staff of the Hebron Fire Protection The Hebron Fire Protection District provides service to a 42 square mile area of unicorporated Boone County, Kentucky.  We have two stations, our Main Administrative Station (Pelley Station) is located at 3120 Northbend Road and Station 2 (Smith Station) is located at 2350 Graves Road.

District.  We currently have 31 career staff, 21 volunteer staff and 18 Jr. Firefighters/Explorers.  Our staff are also very active in the fire service community.  Members serve on and chair many committees like the Northern Kentucky Emergency Services School, the PIO association, Boone County Fire Chief’s and many more.

The fire district currently has an ISO Class 2 rating.  This is an outstanding accomplishment for the district and its personnel.  Less than 2% of fire departments nationwide have achieved this rating of service.  The lower the rating the lower your fire insurance costs.

I personally invite you to look around the website to see the various activities our dedicated staff perform on a daily basis.

Thank You,

Daniel L. Hitzfield, Chief
