The St. Augustine Fire Department was created through a City of St. Augustine Ordinance in 1902 to provide fire services to the residents and visitors of Historic St. Augustine by a paid and professional fire department.  In addition to providing fire suppression, hazardous materials mitigation and emergency medical services, the St. Augustine Fire Department provides many other services related to protecting the lives and property of its citizens. The Department operates under the direction of Fire Chief Carlos Aviles and is made up of four divisions; Administration, Prevention, Training, and Firefighting.
