Orlando Fire Department, was originally started in 1883 when WC Sherman, who had been a member of the Boston Fire Department, came to Orlando. He immediately organized a volunteer fire company and became its first chief. Their original equipment consisted of a hose, reel and a bucket brigade. In 1885, the men asked the town council for a horse, harness and hose wagon and the department was organized with three companies which consisted of the Orlando Fire Department, Orlando Hook and Ladder Company No. 1 and the Orlando Hose Company No. 1. All three of the companies consolidated into the Orlando Fire Department in July of 1885. Approximately six volunteer companies began using the name Orlando Fire Department in 1890. The Mechanics Hose and Engine Company No. 2. was formed in 1892, and in 1893 all volunteer companies consolidated under Mechanics Hose Company No. 1. Orlando Fire Department became a paid department in 1923. In 1980 the department changed the name to the Orlando Fire and Rescue Department, but changed the name back to Orlando Fire Department in 1981.
Orlando Fire Department is dispatched by the Orlando Fire Department Communication Center.
