The City of Jacksonville Beach has had a fire department since 1890 when Jacksonville Beach was known as Pablo Beach. The Fire Department has grown from a volunteer department with a hose and hose reel to having a horse drawn hose wagon, then a motorized truck, and into the current Jacksonville Beach Fire Department which includes full time professional firefighters, an Auxiliary program, two engines and a Quint serving as front line apparatus and two engines in reserve.
The Fire Department is responsible for providing emergency services, prevention and inspection programs, disaster management, and radio communication responsibilities for the City.
The Fire Department is comprised of 31 members; 4 in administration and 27 career staff.
Combat personnel are divided into three shifts. Each shift is comprised of a Shift Commander, two Lieutenants, and six Firefighter/Engineers that operate out of 2 stations- Headquarters Station 1 and South Beach Station 2.
Administration staff includes the Fire Chief, Fire Marshal, Training Lieutenant and an Administrative Assistant that operate out of Headquarters Station 1.
The Jacksonville Beach Fire Department is proud of the service of its current and past members. The Department has 30 retirees with hire dates back to 1933 and up to 37 years of service.
