The St. Bernard Fire Department is staffed full time with firefighter/paramedics and firefighter/EMT’s to serve our community. In addition to fire and EMS response, our members are also trained in a number of technical rescues including rope, trench, and confined space. We are also trained to the Hazardous Materials Technician level in order to safely mitigate a variety of emergencies that may face our community.
Our employees are represented by the IAFF Local 450. They are divided into 3 units that work a 24-48 schedule. Each shift is composed of a Captain, Lieutenant, Engineer, and 4-5 Firefighters.
Members of the St. Bernard Fire Department also participate on their own time in larger regional emergency operations groups such as Hamilton County USAR (Urban Search and Rescue) and the Hamilton County Police Association SWAT.
