The Board of Fire Commissioners for the Key Peninsula Fire Department would like to congratulate and welcome 13 new volunteer firefighters and emergency medical technicians to our department. We recognize the hard work it takes to graduate from the academy, and appreciate your service to save lives and property in our community.
Our department relies on a balance of full-time and volunteer firefighter/EMTs to respond to emergency calls in our community. These new recruits will double the number of volunteers we have serving the public.
We will be analyzing data over the next few months and report back on how emergency response times have improved. That was our commitment to the public, and we appreciate their support that makes this possible.
