A message from the Fire Chief
Wednesday, January 13, 2021

I have the honor and privilege of being the Fire Chief of this great fire company.  I am grateful for all of the support given to me from both members of the fire company and the public.  On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the Carlisle Fire Company, I would like to say welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit our website to learn more about our company.

Since 1802, we have been working to keep the citizens, businesses and visitors of our community safe.  We accomplish this through focusing on the mission first and applying our core values in all we do to enable us to reach our vision of becoming the fire department that provides the very best fire protection and EMS care in Kent and Sussex County, in Delaware, and in the U.S. 

We hold ourselves to a standard of taking pride in all we do, conducting ourselves with a high degree of professionalism, being proficient in our delivery of service, and finally remaining personally accountable for our actions.  We consider ourselves fortunate to have the support of our citizens and elected leaders, as they remain committed to providing us with modern equipment, “state of the art” training and functional facilities.

Our combination system of volunteer members and Career EMS provides the most cost efficient and effective emergency service to our citizens and one that the community can take pride in knowing that the dedicated men and women of the Carlisle Fire Company stand at the ready to respond in any time of need.

I invite you and your family to learn more about the Carlisle Fire Company and the services we provide. Should time allow, we also invite you to visit our fire station at 615 NW Front Street Milford, Delaware.  In closing, the men and women of the Carlisle Fire Company are proud to provide a tradition of excellent public safety service to the residents of Milford and surrounding communities.  If you’d like to comment on or inquire about any of the services that we provide please feel free to contact me at 302-422-8001 or by e-mail at [email protected] and please feel free to browse all of the sections of the website.


Yours in Service,

Ryan Knowles

Fire Chief of the Carlisle Fire Company
