Logistics:

The Logistics section distributes equipment and supplies to 40 service locations including both internal and external users. This section has successfully formed 24 municipal partnerships, providing cost effective and expeditious products and services, which are customer-driven utilizing economy of scale pricing structures.

This approach has established Fire Rescue Logistics as a market leader within the fire rescue support sector as evidenced by a 92% market share.

Airport-Seaport Regional:

The Airport-Seaport Regional program service will be providing support to the Airport and Seaport as well as surrounding interstate highways.

HAZMAT:

This highly trained unit provides support countywide during emergency hazardous materials operations and other large scale incidents as requested in order to minimize the environmental impact and fire hazard due to the unplanned release of hazardous materials. This regional response team responds as requested to large scale incidents anywhere within Broward County, as well as works closely with municipal fire departments to provide needed training in hazardous materials response.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office also contracts with the cities of Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood and Sunrise to provide coverage along with the Sheriff’s Office for hazardous material response throughout Broward County.

Technical Rescue Team:

This highly specialized unit provides support countywide during emergency operations involving heavy rescue during transportation accidents, building collapse, confined space and trench rescue, high angle rescue and other large scale incidents as requested, in order to minimize the further loss of life or injury during these events.

The Everglades unit is also equipped with a state-of-the-art rescue capable Air Boat. This unique apparatus allows rapid response into otherwise inaccessible areas when persons are lost or injured in the Everglades.
