St. Cloud Fire Rescue's New Transport Unit in Service

Released by St. Cloud Fire Rescue

St. Cloud, Fla. (April 18, 2019) – In our continuing effort to provide the best service to our residents, businesses, surrounding areas and St. Cloud visitors, the St. Cloud Fire Rescue Department officially placed an additional full time rescue unit in service, this month. This now allows SCFRD to have four full time transport units located within city limits. This accomplishment is the result of a year-long effort between SCFRD and the City Council. Following statistical analysis and community needs based assessments due to a significant increase in calls for service, SCFRD applied for the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG- Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response: SAFER). The City was awarded, through the SAFER grant, six additional firefighters to assist with operational staffing and the increase in service calls.
