The Lenexa Fire Department began in 1907 as a citizen bucket brigade. The first official piece of firefighting equipment purchased was an 1878 soda acid extinguisher, which is still on display at Fire Station 1. In 1923, the Lenexa Fire Department was officially recognized as a city department with Lewis O. Krumm serving as the first fire chief. The department was all volunteer until 1969, when four full-time employees were added to the existing 32 volunteers.

  • Fire Station #1 was originally located at 93rd Street and Santa Fe Trail Drive. In 1986, we built a new Fire Station #1 at 9620 Pflumm. This building still serves as our headquarters.

  • Fire Station #2 was built near 87th Street Parkway and Lackman Road in 1974.

  • Fire Station #3 was originally annexed from Monticello Township in 1986 and was located just west of K-7 on 83rd Street. We built a replacement Fire Station #3 in 2005 at Prairie Star Parkway and Gleason Road.

  • Fire Station #4 was built near 108th Street and Renner Boulevard in 1990.

  • First Station #5 was built on Prairie Star Parkway between Renner Boulevard and Woodland Road in 2010.

Strategic Plan

Every five years, we participate in a formal planning process to provide focus and clarity in our pursuit of excellence. In November 2015, we invited external stakeholders to give us feedback about community priorities and expectations, areas of concern, positive feedback, and other thoughts. We used that feedback to guide our internal stakeholder work session and establish initiatives for the next five years.
