We appreciate your understanding and assistance as we all deal with the evolving Coronavirus / COVID-19 situation.
The Lakeland Fire Department (LFD) works diligently to live up to the City of Lakeland’s values and to fulfill the department’s mission and vision. LFD is made up of an incredibly dedicated and diverse group of people who consistently display a professional commitment to protect the life and property of Lakeland’s citizenry and visitors.
It is LFD’s duty to provide professional, compassionate, and respectful emergency services to anyone in need. The Lakeland Fire Department is proud to be an Insurance Services Office Class 1 department, the highest achievable rating. This rating is thanks to the quality, coverage, services, and preventative measures taken by the department. The ISO 1 rating also affords the community with peace of mind and lower insurance rates.
LFD provides multiple services, including: fire suppression, non-transport Advanced Life Support Emergency Medical Services response, fire inspections and investigations, plans review, and community outreach. LFD is also very dynamic in that it has a Technical Rescue Team offering rescue service in confined spaces, trench, high angle, building collapse, and vehicle or machinery entrapment. Additionally, the department also provides Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) protection at the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport, Lakeland’s regional airport.
