Suppression Operations

Overview 

The Bonita Springs Fire Control and Rescue District responds to a wide range of emergency incidents including all types of fires, medical and trauma emergencies, vehicle accidents, special operation incidents, and public service calls. Non-emergency duties include: Inspection of apparatus and equipment, Training, Public education, Pre-fire planning, Fire hydrant maintenance, Minor repair of equipment, Maintenance of fire stations, and Physical fitness training.


Annual Response Profile

During 2019, the District responded to 7,439 emergencies. EMS emergency responses equaled 65% of the total incidents. Responses to fire emergencies equaled 35%.


Fire Personnel

As of 2019, the Fire Suppression Division provides around-the-clock coverage with 3 shifts staffed by a total of 93 fire suppression personnel, including 53 paramedics and 40 emergency medical technicians (EMT). Additionally, we have 6 paramedics employed in the Administration Division. There are 17 non-certified employees for a total of 116 full-time personnel, plus 2 part-time administrative positions. 

Emergency Medical Services

2019 marked the 22nd year of providing non-transport advanced life support emergency medical care. Eight units serve Bonita Springs: four engines, one mini-pumper, one rescue unit, and two ladder trucks. All are staffed with firefighters trained as emergency medical technicians and paramedics. In most instances, they are the first to arrive at a medical emergency. Bonita Springs firefighter/paramedics perform advanced life support procedures such as cardiac monitoring, defibrillation, intubation, I.V., and drug therapy often before the arrival of a county ambulance. Once a county ambulance arrives, patient care is transferred from firefighter/paramedics to county paramedics, and the patient is transported to the hospital.

Vehicle Maintenance Program 

The District’s preventative maintenance program has dramatically reduced costs while improving reliability and safety. We have increased efficiency and established a functional maintenance and repair facility. The vehicle maintenance budget for 2018/19 FY was $192,500.  The revenue budget for that same period was $60,000.
