Operations Division

Clearwater's community is served from eight fire station locations, each station having an engine company and six of the stations support an ALS rescue unit.

The department is a full-service department, which supplies fire prevention and suppression, advanced life support (ALS) rescue response, water rescue (including public safety divers) and technical rescue for confined space and high angle rescue situations. In addition to the basic engine and rescue companies, the Department also responds with two aerial units and one squad/heavy rescue/air supply unit.

Fire Operations provides the vital services required for protecting the lives and property of the residents within the entire City Fire District. There are more than 180 certified line personnel who provide suppression and emergency medical services to citizens. In addition to managing day-to-day fire operations and medical services, the Operations Division also tests fire hydrants, inspects the fire equipment and apparatus, and oversees that facilities are maintained for safety and living space.
