Community Safety

The Palm Coast Fire Department promotes fire safety in this community. We give back to the community by offering our community outreach, home inspections and safety programs for all residents.


What Is an ISO Rating?
By classifying communities' ability to suppress fires, ISO helps the communities evaluate their public fire-protection services. The program provides an objective, countrywide standard that helps fire departments in planning and budgeting for facilities, equipment, and training. And by securing lower fire insurance premiums for communities with better public protection, the PPC program provides incentives and rewards for communities that choose to improve their firefighting services.

Fire Department personnel who have been trained as car seat technicians will check to make sure car seats are installed properly and to the manufacturer and vehicle specifications. They will be able to instruct the parent/guardian on how to properly install the seat. City employees will not actually install the seats, but they will show the owners the proper steps.

Our Safety Trailer is available to groups and large gatherings to educate children in fire safety practices in the home. The trailer can be configured for smoke or weather emergencies and will teach children how to handle those types of situations safely.

We will come to you and present any of the following topics in your organization.  During our presentations we discuss the leading causes and toll of residential fires in the US and City of Palm Coast. Empower Palm Coast residents and visitors to ensure that their homes and families are fire safe.

The Palm Coast Fire Department gives fire extinguisher demonstrations at special events or on request. Most of us have seen the red bottle sitting on the shelf or mounted to the wall, but we may not know the proper method of using them. With our mock fire apparatus we can create fires in a controlled situation that allow you to approach and extinguish the flames.

Fire extinguisher demonstrations are available for community groups and businesses. This valuable service will allow your group or employees to have hands-on experience at combating fires with fire extinguishers.

The City of Palm Coast Fire is proud to be a participating member of the National Safe Place Program. Safe Place is a designated location for children who may be experiencing difficulties in their life. These children may be runaways, abused, or just may simply be seeking assistance.

The Palm Coast Fire Stations are registered Baby Drop Stations. In the event a mother gives birth and for whatever reason feels she cannot keep the child she can bring it to any Fire Station or Hospital and leave the "new born infant" with no questions asked and no repercussions to the parent. These are the only locations that he/she can drop a child without facing criminal charges. By law we are not allowed to ask any questions.
