Butler County Fire District # 3 covers 71 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 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 23 member volunteer contingent is utilized. These volunteers are supported by a career staff of 3 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 in excess of 600 alarms annually.
