Our Firefighters love giving back to the community and sharing more about the many services offered by the department. Although often busy with heavy call volume, training, and other commitments, firefighters will attend select community events when possible.

Used sharps must be disposed of properly. The Lakeland Fire Department is NOT able to take possession of sharps containers or medication from private individuals for disposal. However, there are several community partners that can accept medical waste. Learn more here.
All LFD fire stations are safe havens for newborns. Mothers, fathers, or whoever is in possession of a newborn is able to leave the newborn at a staffed fire rescue station anonymously and free from fear of prosecution. A newborn can be left at any LFD station or office. Click here for station locations.
