The publication presents the department a unique opportunity to share with the people of St. Augustine the wide array of services it delivers to the community on a daily basis.

While the print edition will not be available until April 2019, three sneak previews will be showcased online between November and January.

The St. Augustine community knows its fire department is responsible for not only firefighting but also courageous rescue efforts in many different circumstances, including medical traumas and hazmat emergencies, but the magazine will also share many behind-the-scenes services provided by the department.

Chief Aviles is eager for the community to get a more personal look at the firefighters, and perhaps learn the name of a firefighter that may have helped them in the past.

While no one hopes that they will need our services, it is a powerful feeling when someone is instantly relieved to see our units arrive at their home.”

The services delivered by the St. Augustine Fire Department is second to none. As members of a caring community, these firefighters know the importance of their role and they train rigorously to deliver the best possible service whether fighting fires or teaching CPR. In the three sneak previews and complete magazine the community will learn about the all services and the depth of training including how the firefighters train to carry 55 pounds of gear in every emergency, along with hoses, stretchers, as well as their live fire, hazmat, and rope rescue training.
