The Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards Township Fire Department is comprised of two fully functioning Fire Halls, one in Round Lake and one in Killaloe along with a tanker stationed at the KH&R Garage along Highway 60 just west of the Simpson Pit Road.

The KHRFD has approval to staff to 28 persons. It is staffed by a wholly volunteer force. Those volunteers, spend years undertaking training on a weekly or monthly basis and put themselves on the line to protect citizen's lives and property. Training includes such things as Fire Suppression, Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA), Ropes and Knots, Ladders, Water Supply, Fire Streams, Portable Fire Extinguishers, Ventilation, Pumps, Incident Command, Tanker Operations, Vehicle Extrication, Public Education, Public Relations, Fire Inspections, Communications, CPR, First Aid and a myriad of other related functions.

The KHRFD provides fire suppression and rescue services. It is certified in heavy extrication and provides services to townships other than KH&R by its membership in the Renfrew County Mutual Aid Program. It has six fire vehicles; three pumpers of various configurations, a tanker, a rescue van and a rapid response vehicle/bush truck.

The KHRFD provides a Fire Prevention Program to the Township and undertakes a number of community focused activities such as the annual open house, school fire prevention and education program etc.
