About The Fire-Rescue Department
The original Naples Fire Department was established in 1945 when the City of Naples hired firefighters to replace the all volunteer squad. The Fire-Rescue Department is a combination of the Fire Operations Division and Fire Prevention Division. The Fire-Rescue Department consists of 39 firefighters, 12 lieutenants, four battalion chiefs, one fire marshal, one fire chief, one administrative assistant, four fire inspectors, one fire prevention specialist and three fire stations.
The Fire Operations Division is primarily responsible for fire suppression and response to medical emergencies. Operations also responds to incidents involving technical rescue operations, hazardous material incidents and public service requests. A special response unit is used for mitigation of confined space incidents, underwater rescue / recovery and high angle rope rescue. Two advanced life support engines currently offer paramedic services from fire stations one and two.
The Fire Prevention Division is primarily responsible for conducting fire and life safety inspections in new and existing buildings, plan review, delivering quality fire and life safety public education programs and fire origin and cause investigations.
