The Lauderhill Fire Rescue Operations Division is staffed by 90 professional and dedicated men and women who serve the residents and visitors to the City of Lauderhill. All members are cross trained as Firefighters and Paramedics and provide all types of emergency response for fire suppression, emergency medical and disaster incidents. In addition to the emergency response incidents, Fire & Rescue also respond to a variety of non-emergency and community service calls to average more than 15,000 calls for service each year.
The Operations Division staffs four ALS fire suppression companies (2-engine companies & 2-quints), four ALS rescue trucks, and one Battalion Chief, who respond out of four fire stations each day. The 90 personnel are divided across three shifts that work 24 hours on shift, and 48 hours off, as well as three full time Fire Inspector/Fire Investigators that work daily.
In addition to emergency calls, the Operations Division supervises the Bureau of Fire Prevention and the Training Division. The Operations Division personnel must maintain and enhance their skills through a continuous training program for fire and EMS incidents. Operations Division personnel are also active on a day to day basis conducting pre-incident fire plans, inspecting fire hydrants, and maintaining the apparatus and the fire stations. The Operations Division supports the public education effort by presenting programs in the field and attends many community functions each year.
