Volunteer Fire Departments

Six volunteer fire departments (VFDs) provide fire and medical first response services within the unincorporated areas of Leon County under Agreements with the County. The VFDs supplement the response of Leon County EMS and the Tallahassee Fire Department. The VFDs are independent organizations that provide fire apparatus/vehicles (not owned by the County), equipment, and personnel to respond to incidents.

If you would like to volunteer at any of the VFDs or if you have questions about the services they provide, please contact the chief of the department listed below or call Leon County EMS at 850-606-2100.
