With more than 1,700 employees located at 57 fire rescue stations and several administrative facilities, this department provides service to unincorporated Dade County and 28 municipalities, including a resident population of nearly than 2.4 million distributed over 1,924 square miles.
Along with suppression and EMS capabilities, MDFR has the ability to transport patients to area trauma hospitals via Air Rescue's two trauma helicopters. The department also has a Marine Services Bureau responding to incidents requiring their expertise in the many waterways throughout our county.
