On behalf of the men and women of the Key West Fire Department, it is my pleasure to welcome you.

Established in 1875, the Key West Fire Department has a rich and proud history of service and commitment to the visitors and residents of our city.

Our department is comprised of 73 members divided into two divisions: suppression and prevention. Overall, we have 60 Emergency Medical Technicians, 14 of which are Paramedics.

In addition to our daily fire suppression and rescue services, our specialized teams such as the Hazardous Materials Team, Dive Team, Urban Search & Rescue and Technical Rescue Team are staffed around the clock and are extremely proficient at specialized incidents.

Our department has a fully staffed fire prevention bureau that is responsible for fire inspections, fire investigations, fire code complaints, plans review and public education. Although Key West is a relatively small island, our fire department stays very busy. Last year we answered over 2400 calls for service with an average response time of just less than 3 minutes. Loyal and dedicated individuals staff our department and we also recognize the importance of having the support of the community and our local officials. We are extremely grateful for that support.We are committed to be prepared and always ready to respond in order to continue Serving the Southernmost City.
