Butler County, the largest county in the state of Kansas geographically with an area of 1,428 sq miles, is served by a total of nine Butler County Fire Districts, four City Fire Departments, one Cowley County Fire District, one Consolidated Fire District and Frontier Refinery Fire Department in El Dorado.

Butler County Fire District # 3 covers seventy square miles in southwestern Butler County, serving 8000 citizens in the rural areas of Pleasant and Richland Townships and the City of Rose Hill. We have automatic aid agreements with Andover Fire-Rescue to our north, Butler County Fire District # 8 to our east and Sedgwick County Fire District # 1 to our west, which adds 93 automatic aid square miles to our coverage area.
 
In an effort to keep service delivery costs within the means of the community, a twenty-one member volunteer contingent is utilized. These volunteers are supported by a career staff of four individuals. The District's organizational philosophy is one of meeting the District mission by the effective use of skilled volunteers supported by a career staff. During weekday business hours, when volunteers are working, at school, or otherwise not available, the volunteer response group is supplemented by career staff response. The District responds to an average of 600 alarms annually.
 
Our Insurance Service Organization (ISO) ratings are: City of Rose Hill - ISO rating 6. Outside the City of Rose Hill - ISO rating 6 or 9/10, depending on your location.

Important Information


APRIL BURN BAN IN EFFECT

Kansas Administrative Regulation (K.A.R.) 28-19-645a, Open Burning Restrictions for Certain Counties During the Month of April, is a new regulation in support of the State of Kansas Flint Hills Smoke Management Plan (SMP) that was formally adopted by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) on December 29, 2010.

Burning that will continue to be allowed in these counties during April include agricultural burning related to the management of prairie or grasslands (range or pasture management) and conservation reserve program (CRP) burning activities. Restricted activities include burning of materials such as land clearing debris, crop residues, construction debris, fire fighter training burns, and yard waste. Existing exemptions in K.A.R. 28-19-647(a)(1) and (a)(2) have been retained in the proposed new regulation as K.A.R. 28-19-645a(b)(2) and allow for the following: (1) open burning on a residential premise containing five or less dwelling units and incidental to the normal habitation of the dwelling units; and (2) open burning for cooking or ceremonial purposes on public or private lands regularly used for recreational purposes. Other exemptions may be considered on a case-by-case basis for certain activities, of which the burning of storm debris would be a good example of a possible qualifying exemption.

Burn activities not explicitly exempted in the new regulation will be subject to review and approval by the KDHE. Any proposed burn activity must be proven to be necessary, to be in the public interest, and not to be prohibited by any local government or local fire authority.

THE REGULATIONS WILL APPLY IN THE FOLLOWING 16 COUNTIES

Butler, Chase, Chautauqua, Cowley, Elk, Geary, Greenwood, Johnson, Lyon, Marion, Morris, Pottawatomie, Riley, Sedgwick, Wabaunsee, Wyandott
