The Town's Fire Department is Station 116, located at 3612 South Ocean Boulevard, Highland Beach, Florida 33487. Currently the station is under the leadership of Fire Chief Tomey. Delray Beach Fire-Rescue is a full service Fire Department made up of six fire stations (five in Delray Beach and one in Highland Beach) and the system staffed with over 150 highly trained professionals. Through the Interlocal Agreement with the City of Delray Beach, the Town owns the equipment, the fire station located just north of Town Hall, the fire truck, rescue truck, and other related equipment. The City of Delray Beach Fire-Rescue provides the personnel to staff our fire station. Highland Beach "Station 116" is staffed with five personnel on each 24 hour shift, with 3 shifts rotating every third day. Both the ladder truck and rescue vehicle owned by Highland Beach are ALS (advanced life support) equipped, serving our residents with the most current life-saving technology. The Fire Department also provides fire inspections for the Town.
Delray Beach Fire-Rescue also offers various special resources, such as dive and ocean rescue, hazardous materials and heavy rescue response teams, which can be called upon to serve Highland Beach should the need arise. Delray Beach Fire-Rescue personnel participate in training exercises each week, ensuring their skills are kept as current as possible at all times. Residents are welcome to stop by and visit Station 116 to meet our fine fire-rescue personnel.
