The Shawnee Heights Fire District has a rich and long history. We’re proud of it and happy to share it with you.
From our small start in 1937 as the Topeka Fire Department, providing service outside the city limits for a fee, to the huge changes through the decades, our growth has been steady. Along the way, we’ve added more fire stations, more engines, trucks, and equipment, to better serve and protect our community. We’ve grown into protecting 190 square miles, with our district including Tecumseh, Topeka, Monmouth, and Williamsport Townships.
