The St. Lucie County Fire District is an independent, county-wide special district which is governed by a seven member Fire Board, comprised of two commissioners from the City of Ft. Pierce, two councilmen from the City of Port St. Lucie, two St. Lucie County Commissioners, and an appointee by the Governor of the State of Florida.

Fire and emergency medical services in St. Lucie were consolidated into this independent special district, which eliminated the need and cost for managing multiple fire/EMS agencies.  Unlike typical fire departments, the St. Lucie County Fire District must also handle all support functions on its own.

The Fire District is the largest fire/EMS provider on the Treasure Coast and the fifth largest in the State of Florida. The Fire District operates 17 fire stations, which protect 271,000 residents and cover 614 square miles of St. Lucie County.  During 2011, the Fire District responded to over 38,600 emergency calls.

The Fire District adopted a streamlined 2009-2010 annual budget, which reflects a decrease of more than $1.9 Million from last year’s budget, while maintaining the ability to provide fire protection and emergency medical services to all St. Lucie County citizens and residents.
