The Central Campbell County Fire District is a combination department located in Northern Kentucky.
The Fire District is a product of a July 1, 2000 merger between the Cold Spring-Crestview Fire Department and the Highland Heights Fire Department. This merger, the first in Campbell County, was implemented to increase and enhance the present level of service.
The Central Campbell County Fire District is responsible for providing fire suppression, advanced life support EMS, rescue and fire prevention to the cities of Cold Spring, Crestview, Highland Heights, unincorporated areas of Campbell County, as well as the campus of Northern Kentucky University.
We serve a population of 15,000 citizens in addition to 16,000 students and faculty at Northern Kentucky University within an eighteen square mile area. The Fire District personnel respond to over 2,700 calls annually, including mutual aid fire and EMS responses to neighboring departments.
Located within the fire district is the national headquarters for the Disable American Veterans, the national corporate offices of General Cable, Griffin Industries, three elementary schools, a special needs school, six day care facilities, and thirteen churches. Also located within the district boundaries is a Columbia Gas natural gas transfer station which reduces high pressure gas lines to low pressure, as well as a large natural gas line that crosses through the middle of the fire district. Interstates I-471, I-275 and the AA Highway traverse through the fire district. We are also in the flight path of the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati Airport and the Cincinnati Lunken Airport.
The department is also responsible for providing services including staffing events for the BB&T Arena, a 10,000 seat multi-purpose arena, the largest such facility in Northern Kentucky.
