About us

Welcome to Kingwood Volunteer Fire Department

The Kingwood Volunteer Fire Department was established in 1899 and is located in Kingwood, West Virginia, the county seat of Preston County. The KVFD protects the city of Kingwood, which is 2.4 square miles with a population of about 3200. The KVFD also protects outlying areas such as Manown, Preston, Howesville and Caddell Mountain. This makes our total area of coverage about 54 square miles with a population of 5200. The majority of this area is rural and in some cases without fire hydrants. In our area we protect Matthews Bronze, Preston Memorial Hospital, Appalachian Wood Pellets, Preston High School and Camp Dawson. The 3 major routes through our area are Rt.7, Rt.26 and Rt.72. The Cheat River also flows through our area. The Preston County HIRT team (Hazards Incident Response Team,) Company 30 also meets and houses equipment at KVFD. Preston County has 11 other fire departments, 5 ambulance squads and Company 17, the County Dive Team.
