The Cincinnati Fire Department is the municipal fire department and emergency medical service agency for Cincinnati, Ohio. Established on April 1, 1853, it was the first paid fully professional fire department in the United States.[2] The Cincinnati Fire Department was the first fire department to use steam fire engines.[3] The department currently operates out of 26 fire stations, located throughout the city in 4 districts, each commanded by a district chief.[4][5][6]

The Cincinnati Fire Department was located in the Cincinnati City Hall until the 1860s, when it moved to a firehouse at Sixth and Vine.[7]

The history of the Cincinnati Fire Department is located at the Cincinnati Fire Museum.

The current fire chief is Richard A. Braun. Chief Braun who took office in 2011, succeeding Robert Wright.[8]
