The Tallahassee Fire Department provides fire protection and emergency medical services to the city of Tallahassee, Florida. The department dates back to 1902, when the first fire department was established by the city. However, some fire protection service existed before that; in 1872 the Colored Hook and Ladder Company responded to the fire which destroyed Lincoln Academy, after the white company, citing "insufficient hoses", refused to respond.[2]

Today TFD has 16 stations serving approximately 702 square miles (1,820 km2) incorporated and unincorporated land in Tallahassee as well as parts of Leon County with over 278,000 residents.[3] The department is staffed by 267 certified firefighters and responds to over 22,000 incidents annually.

Stations and apparatus[edit]

The TFD has 16 stations spread out across the city and split into 3 battalions.[1]
