In 1978 the Broward County Commission began the process of creating the Broward County Fire Department by merging the various independent fire districts (Pompano Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Sunrise, Margate and others) together creating the largest fire department in the county. This process begun in 1978 was fully merged by 1981.
In the early 1990’s the Broward County Fire Department merged with Broward County Emergency Medical Services to form the largest fire rescue provider in Broward County. Firefighters began cross-training as paramedics and EMS personnel began firefighting training. The cross-training process increased the number of trained firefighter/paramedics on each emergency vehicle and provided an optimal service model for the residents and visitors to Broward County. In addition to improving the fire rescue service level countywide, Broward County Fire Rescue members created various Special Operations branches within the organization.
In 2003, the Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO), through a contract with the Broward County Commission, assumed control of Broward County Fire Rescue, Port Everglades Fire Rescue and Ft. Lauderdale- Hollywood International Airport Fire Rescue departments. In addition, the Broward Sheriff’s Office secured contracts for fire rescue service in the cities of Cooper City and Lauderdale Lakes.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office began providing fire rescue services to the city of Deerfield Beach Fire Rescue in October of 2011. Fire Rescue Services are also provided to the citizens of Hillsboro Beach per contract with the City.
