Davenport Fire Department Host Station Open Houses
Posted on 04/06/2022
Davenport Fire is hosting Station Open Houses to celebrate 140 years.

April 6, 2022 - The Davenport Fire Department is celebrating 140 years. In 1882, the Davenport City Council authorized the formation of a municipal fire department, and this was the formal creation of the Davenport Fire Department. The year 2022 marks the 140th year of DFD as a paid, professional fire department. In celebration, the public is invited to attend Fire Station Open Houses. The hour and a half events will run 9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month beginning April 9th through October 8th.

“The Davenport Fire Department is proud to be a progressive department, but we want to remember and celebrate our heritage,” said Chief Mike Carlsten, Davenport Fire Chief. “The majority of the time the community only sees the Fire Department when we are responding to incidents. These Open Houses will give the community a chance to talk with firefighters and learn about the Davenport Fire Department and the work these firefighters do every day.” 

Open House attendees can enjoy snacks, tour the stations, and meet Davenport firefighters. There will be information about the history of the Davenport Fire Department, the functions of each Davenport Fire Station, and pictures of the new Station 3 being built on 42nd and Brady Street in 2023.
