Our All Hazards Approach
With 264 square miles of service area including coastal and inland topography and urban and rural landscapes and more than 143,000 annual residents, our response encompasses a broad spectrum of threats and hazards. Response efforts become more varied when you add in another 100,000 plus visitors to our district to recreate, dine and stay in the many hotels and employees who travel into the district for work in the large corporate and commercial buildings.
The District’s All Hazards approach does not mean “plan for everything”. Rather, we measure risk with frequency. Although incidents may not frequently occur, if there is significant risk, we must consider the options within our service provisions. Special Operations Teams for the District include Marine Emergency Response Team (MERT), Haz-Mat, Dive and Technical Rescue. These teams train at high levels to be prepared for non-typical emergencies.
All Hazard response types include:
• Fire suppression for structures, vehicles and wildland
• Emergency medical services including advanced life support
• Vehicular accidents
• Technical rescue including confined space/structural collapse, high angle and trench rescue
• Hazmat/CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological & Nuclear Defense)
• Dive and beach/marine rescue
• Natural gas and propane leaks and explosions
• Active shooter incidents
• Emergency management response and assistance during natural disasters
• USAR (Urban Search and Rescue)
• Fire inspections
• Building construction plan reviews for fire and safety compliance
• Fire Investigations
• Public Education
In working collaboratively with our jurisdictional partners, we can ensure effective response to all hazards. North Collier Fire is proud of its relationships with community providers such as hospitals, Collier County Sheriff’s Office, Collier County EMS, Collier County Emergency Management and fellow Fire-Rescue agencies. These partnerships have culminated into joint operations to include, but not limited to Marine Emergency Response Team (MERT), Incidents of Mass Violence, Hazardous Materials Response, Technical Rescue, Beach Response and Retirement Community Response.
Ever-evolving, the District continuously evaluates the development of innovative solutions to manage the challenges faced each day.
North Collier Fire & Rescue has 10 stations across Collier County as well as a few support facilities. View the map below to see where the stations are located or please click this link to visit the Stations page for more details.
