Mission Statement

Provide Exceptional Public Safety Services in a Safe, Compassionate and Professional Manner



Emergency Services

Whether you dial 9-1-1 for a fire or other emergency or visit one of our six fire stations to meet your firefighters and paramedics, North Port Fire Rescue personnel will conduct themselves in a professional, sensitive and service-driven manner. All line personnel are highly-trained Florida state-certified firefighters and emergency medical technicians or paramedics. Our Emergency Services Division also maintains the state-certified Technical Rescue Team (TRT), a mass casualty incident trailer and an utility-terrain vehicle outfitted for patient transport and wildland firefighting.


Training, Safety and Health

The Training, Safety and Health Division is a critical component of the department. North Port Fire Rescue personnel are highly trained, equipped and operate in a safe and efficient manner. Routine refresher training is provided, and all members sustain comprehensive annual physicals.


Emergency Management

The Emergency Management Division ensures City government, as well as residents and businesses, are prepared for any hazard for which we are at risk. Additionally, Emergency Management maintains the City’s Emergency Operations Center for emergencies and disasters which requires support from all departments of City government. The North Port Community Emergency Response Team is supported by Emergency Management through organizational guidance, resource support and mission assignment during emergencies.


Fire Prevention

The Fire Prevention Division provides fire inspection services during building construction and annual re-inspections to ensure compliance with the State Fire Prevention Code. Outreach to the community served allows personalized service. Smoke alarm checks, station visits and fire safety presentations comprise a portion of the services provided.


Administrative Services

Administrative Services provides full support to the department through budgeting, fiscal and property accounting, reception services and facility maintenance.


Safe Places and Safe Havens

Safe Places

North Port Fire Rescue fire stations are designated as "Safe Places." Safe Place is the first step to help for any youth in crisis or at risk. This community collaboration program, operated by youth shelters or youth serving agencies make it possible for any youth to access help at locations including fast food restaurants, convenience stores, fire stations, libraries and city buses which display the Safe Place sign. Youth can easily find help at Safe Place sites in their own neighborhood whenever they need it. Safe Place connects youth to immediate help and safety and offers supportive services to both youth and their families.View more information on the National Safe Place website.


Safe Havens

North Port Fire Rescue fire stations are also designated as "Safe Havens for Newborns." The Safe haven law is a safety net for both the mother and the newborn infant. Instead of abandoning a newborn to an almost sure death, it allows mothers, fathers or whoever is in possession of an unharmed newborn, approximately seven days old or less, to leave them at a Safe Haven facility: Any Hospital, Staffed 24/7 Fire Rescue Station, or Staffed 24/7 Emergency Medical Service Station, with no questions asked, totally anonymous, free from fear of prosecution. View more information on the A Safe Haven For Newborns website.
