Key Largo Fire Rescue & EMS District


The KLFR&EMS District Mission is to provide exceptional fire protection and emergency medical services efficiently and cost-effectively without compromising the health or safety of residents or personnel.


The FINAL APPROVED FY 2015-2016 BUDGET has been postd in the Budget & Audit Tab.

The District received a Dept of Homeland Security/FEMA grant in the amount of $25,272.00 for Personal Protective Equipment for the firefighters.

The Key Largo Fire Rescue & Emergency Medical Services District was born on June 8, 2005 when Governor Bush approved Florida Statute 2005-329 that created the 68th Special Fire Taxing District in the State of Florida. 

Our State Legislative Representative, Ken Sorensen, sponsored House Bill 1291 at the request of community and county leaders.  The bill unanimously passed both the Florida House and Senate. 

Both the volunteer fire and emergency medical services organizations believed that by establishing the district they would be able to:

►  Offer residents a higher-level of service at a lower cost,

►  Provide more direct control over revenue and expenses,  

►  Streamline existing work processes to reduce administrative tasks,

►  Foster volunteerism, and

  Remain as volunteer departments. 

Today, the five-member elected KLFR&EMS District Board contracts services from each of the same separately-owned, non-profit 501.c(3) corporations that have provided outstanding volunteer fire and emergency medical services to Key Largo residents for over 50 years.

Both volunteer departments are meeting and exceeding state-mandated standards for

  Response times and

►  Volunteer qualifications.
