The Jacksonville Fire Department provides three Advanced Life Support Ambulances 24 hours a day 7 days a week. We are dedicated to providing the best pre-hospital care to the citizens of Jacksonville. The Jacksonville Fire Department began providing Emergency Medical Service in 1980 and continues to provide these services today and in the future.
By combining the Fire and EMS needs of the city under one department we are able to provide a more streamlined, cost-efficient-service. All members of Jacksonville Fire Department are cross-trained to at least the EMT level and are capable of working on an ambulance or fire apparatus at any given time. This ensures that everyone that responds to an EMS scene has the same training, command structure, and working relationship that you may not find when these agencies are split into two departments.
