Thank you for visiting the Sanibel Fire & Rescue District website. The core values of our district are pride, honor, excellence, and community, and we strive to provide this to all of our residents and visitors.  

Sanibel Fire & Rescue District is an independent special district governed by a board of fire commissioners, comprised of three seats including Chairman, Vice-Chairman, and Secretary/Treasurer. Each seat is voted in by the residents of Sanibel Island. We work with our commissioners to implement operational decisions which provides our residents and visitors with the highest level of fire suppression, medical response, fire prevention, and education. 

We believe that each resident contributes directly to Sanibel Fire & Rescue District’s growth and success, and we hope you take pride in being a part of our district.

Thank you for your continued support, the encouragement we receive from our residents and visitors affirms we are moving in the right direction. It is my privilege to serve you and I look forward to what the future holds for our department.
