The official website of IAFF Local 83 in Topeka Kansas
Since 1918 the members of this local have provided the citizens and visitors of Topeka, KS with fire protection. Over the past 90 years members of local 83 have expanded services offered to include EMS, hazardous materials, technical, and water rescue.
From natural disasters, fires, car wrecks, and medical calls the members of this local have always been willing to answer the call. For a few of our members that has meant the ultimate sacrifice. We will never forget them or members of our international family who gave all.
Our current membership is 237 strong and serves in many different roles. From the rank and file fire fighters, apparatus operators, lieutenants, captains, battalion chiefs, shift commanders, investigators, inspectors, training, public education, and communications officer.
