Call Volume and Types of Calls
Each year, our Department responds to over 9,000 calls for service. A large percentage of these calls are medical in nature. Our Department responds engine/rescue companies to all medical emergencies within the City limits. All of our 4 fire stations and all first response apparatus respond with ALS (advanced life support) units. Our average response time is under 5 minutes.
Brevard County Fire Rescue provides patient transportation within our city. The two main County transport units serving the Titusville area are located on south Columbia Blvd. and the intersection of Park Avenue and South Street.
In addition to emergency medical calls, TFD responds to a wide variety of other emergency and non-emergency calls inside and outside of the city. On any given day, we may respond to structure fires, vehicle fires, power lines down, vehicle accidents, water rescues, or hazardous materials incidents. We may also expect to respond at any time to help a disabled person back into bed, rescue a kitten stuck in a tree, assist citizens with broken residential water lines, provide community blood pressure checks, and participate with the Public Education Division in providing life safety education programs.
We are a customer service-oriented department and often our service level to the citizens of Titusville extends beyond the traditional duties of some fire departments. We are proud of the service we provide and continually strive to better serve our community members with cheerfulness and a cooperative spirit.
