Welcome to Medicine Lodge

October is National Fire Safety Month with October 6-12 focusing on Fire Safety Week. Our City department has spent the last several days with our kiddos teaching them about all aspects of fire safety, including making sure smoke and CO alarms are tested monthly and having an emergency escape plan. The kids are also given a tour of our local fire department and fire trucks. Above is Medicine Lodge City Fire Department volunteer Matt Azure and his son Derrick during his class tour. Thank you to our public safety volunteers for everything that you do and for keeping us safe!

Medicine Lodge is the most populous city in and the county seat of Barber County, KS. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 2,009. Beautiful Gypsum Hills scenery, rich history, winding rivers, plentiful wildlife and eclectic shops and restaurants are all a part of the charm our town has to offer.
