Fire Department


From the Fire Chief



The Lake Worth Fire Department provides public safety services to the citizens of our community. Our fire department is staffed by a Chief, Fire Marshal, and 18 career firefighters. In addition to fire suppression, we also offer fire prevention education programs to many groups in our community. These fire prevention programs not only reach out to schools, but business and industry, targeting all of our community.

Each piece of fire apparatus is equipped with basic life support and early defibrillation equipment. Every member of this Fire Department is prepared to deliver highly skilled emergency medical and rescue services whenever they are needed.

When city residents are suddenly confronted with an emergency, the Fire Department usually represents their only resort in dealing with the situation. Lake Worth firefighters have made a commitment to education and training to the highest of standards. This helps us to respond and assist citizens facing a true emergency in the most effective manner.

As chief, I am very proud of the interest and dedication exhibited by the personnel of the Lake Worth Fire Department. I believe their continued enthusiasm has the potential to make this organization one of the finest Fire Departments in our area.
