Fire Department

The Department

The Key West Fire Department is a full-service fire rescue dedicated to the promotion and protection of the well-being of residents and guests of our vibrant island city.

The Mission

We strive every day to provide the best medical service, fire suppression response, and fire prevention enforcement we can, both on land and on the water, to enhance the quality of life and safety here in Key West, and we don’t stop there. Further services include responding to hazardous materials, educating the public about fire safety, disaster management, and beyond.

The Vision

The Key West Fire Department is committed to constant improvement every year through training and evaluation. This pursuit has earned us the exemplary Class 1 rating that less than 200 of the 50,000 departments in the U.S. hold. We aim to maintain this rating and exceed the expectations it carries.
