The mission of the Riviera Beach Fire-Rescue Department is to protect the quality of life in our community by delivering the highest level of services in the most effective, efficient, safest, and professional manner possible with the resources available to us. The department delivers fire, rescue, and emergency medical services from four fire stations strategically located throughout the city.
Riviera Beach Fire Rescue proudly serves the City of Riviera Beach, as well as providing EMS services to the Town of Palm Beach Shores. Riviera Beach Fire Rescue has 4 stations that are located throughout Riviera Beach. Each Station houses a fire suppression unit and a medic transport unit. Every day there is a minimum of 17 fire personnel manning these 4 stations that ensure emergency response capabilities for 24 hours. When not responding to emergency calls, crews are busy completing a variety of training, carrying out station duties, checking out vehicles and equipment, while conducting quick access surveys and zone familiarizations.
The City of Riviera Beach is made up of 8.3 square miles with a population of 30,000. Riviera Beach Fire Rescue responds to approximately 7.000 calls a year. The calls consist of structure fires, fire alarms, medical emergencies, motor vehicle accidents and public assists. These calls are the reason why Riviera Beach Fire Rescue constantly trains to keep their skills up with the latest technology and innovations in the fire service.
