The year was 1973, when local residents of Palm Coast decided to have a Fire Department of their own. With the donation of a Fire Engine, by the ITT Corporation, and the use of a maintenance shed at the local golf course, the Volunteer Fire Department at Palm Coast was formed. Responding to the request, some 36 original members started what has become a combination department.
Current membership includes, 37 career employees, 40 volunteers, including Fire Police and Associate members. Members have responded to not only fire related calls, but emergency medical calls, and emergency management situations. Today, the department handles an average of 15 calls per day. Career members work 24 hour shifts, with 48 hours off. Our volunteers respond as needed 24 hours per day.
The department has seen some tragic times, as has the City. 1985 saw a devastating wildfire ravage areas of the city. At the end of the fire storm of 85', 131 homes were destroyed, and countless others damaged. 1998 again saw a devastating fire season. June 6 saw 20 homes destroyed in Seminole Woods, and on July 2nd, fire destroyed 47 in the Matanza's woods and northern Forrest Grove areas of the City. As rebuilding has taken place, the department became the City Fire Department.
Expansion of services is a project of the department as well as the city. Stop by the local station and say "hi". For more information, please contact :
