Suppression Operations

Overview 

The Bonita Springs Fire Control and Rescue District responds to a wide range of emergency incidents including all types of fires, medical and trauma emergencies, vehicle accidents, special operation incidents, and public service calls. Non-emergency duties include: inspection of apparatus and equipment, training, public education, pre-fire planning, fire hydrant maintenance, minor repair of equipment, maintenance of fire stations, and physical fitness training.

Annual Response Profile

In 2022, the District responded to 8,809 emergencies. EMS emergencies equaled 65.6% of the total incidents. Responses to fires, hazards, and other assistance equaled 34.4%.

Fire Personnel

The Fire Suppression Division provided around-the-clock coverage with three shifts staffed by a total of 96 fire suppression personnel, including 61 paramedics and 35 emergency medical technicians 
(EMTs). Of the 119 full-time personnel, 23 are 40-hour employees. The District also employs one part-time administrative position. 

Emergency Medical Services

2022 marked the 25th year of providing non-transport advanced life support emergency medical care. Thirteen units serve Bonita Springs: four engines, one mini-pumper, one rescue unit, two ladder  trucks, two brush trucks, one heavy rescue squad, one hazardous materials truck, and one marine rescue unit. All are staffed with firefighters trained as emergency medical technicians and paramedics. In most instances, they are the first to arrive at a medical emergency. Bonita Springs firefighter/paramedics perform advanced life support procedures such as cardiac monitoring, defibrillation, intubation, IV, and drug therapy often before the arrival of a Lee County ambulance. Once a county ambulance arrives, patient care is transferred from firefighter/ paramedics to county paramedics, and the patient is
transported to the hospital.

Vehicle Maintenance Program 

The District’s preventative maintenance program has dramatically reduced costs while improving reliability and safety. We have increased efficiency and established a functional maintenance and
repair facility. In addition to our own fleet, EVTs maintain vehicles for the City of Bonita Springs and the San Carlos Park Fire District. The vehicle maintenance budget for 2021/22 FY was $275,000. The
revenue budget for that same period was $46,353.47.
