Moore Haven Now Has Full-Time Firefighter/EMTs

MOORE HAVEN, FL. -- On Wednesday November 6, 2019, Glades County Fire Rescue began 24 hour staffing of a fire engine based out of the Glades County Emergency Operations Center in Moore Haven. 

Engine 12 will be staffed with 2 full time, Florida Certified Firefighter/EMT’s. 

In the coming weeks, fire crews will be traveling throughout Glades County to familiarize themselves with each community. Crews will also be visiting local businesses to conduct pre-incident fire planning to assist responding units with mitigating fires and other incidents that may arise. 

 Glades County Fire Rescue will continue to operate as a combination department which means full time crews will continue to work and train with the current Volunteer Firefighters stationed throughout Glades County. 

Residents can expect to see the full time staff at each of the County’s 5 Volunteer Fire Stations on a weekly rotating schedule. They will be helping our Volunteers with apparatus, equipment, and building maintenance while providing coverage for emergency calls.

    How are these firefighters going to be paid for? How much are the taxes going up? Do the tax payers get no say in this matter? Maybe Mr Jone$ donate his 100,000.00 pay check back to help cover costs.
