The Immokalee Fire Control District is proud to announce the placement of a new piece of apparatus in service. This state-of-the-art Squad will enhance our ability to respond to emergency situations and better serve the community.
The new apparatus is equipped with the latest technology, including medical response gear, firefighter protective gear and SCBA (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus) and a Hurst Combi tool used in vehicle extrications. This will allow our firefighters to more effectively combat fires and rescue those in need.
Squad 30 is a 2022 Ford F250 and will be staffed with two people. This apparatus responds primarily to EMS related calls, motor vehicle accidents, and fire calls. This vehicle was obtained thru a grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Collier County Community and Human Services Division. We are grateful for this support, which has allowed us to purchase this vital piece of equipment.
The Immokalee Fire Control District is committed to providing the highest level of service to our community. The addition of this new apparatus is just one of the ways we are working to improve our ability to respond to emergencies and keep our community safe.
Dear Community Members,
As a community we continue to closely monitor efforts to contain and stop the spread of CoVid-19 nationally and locally. The CDC has recommended Social Distancing as one of the most effective means to prevent spreading the virus. In an effort to protect the health and safety of the community and our firefighters, the Immokalee Fire Control District has implemented the following steps to maximize our Social Distancing without sacrificing emergency response to calls for service.
- All District sponsored travel for education, conferences, and professional development has been cancelled until further notice.
- Restrict fire station access to only current on-duty personnel.
- All station and site tours for youth, school, or community groups shall be postponed.
- Postpone non-essential internal training that requires multi-company gatherings.
- Deliver training, roll call, or meetings virtually with a conference call or web meeting.
- Eliminate unnecessary internal in-person group meetings (cancel if possible). Require any face-to-face meetings to less than 10 attendees and spread out so they are at least six feet apart. No food, drink, or handouts are permitted.
- Limit unnecessary routine movement of on-duty personnel within the community and interaction with large groups in public places. This includes retail, grocery stores, and restaurants.
