MIAMI-DADE FIRE RESCUE
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue is among the ten largest fire and rescue departments in the United States. It serves a population of 1.9 million people throughout an area of 1,900 square miles with nearly 2,500 employees, 2,000 of which are uniformed firefighters. MDFR is the largest department accredited by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International.
