    The South Trail Fire Protection and Rescue Service District is an independent taxing district established by the state legislature to provide fire protection and rescue services to approximately 62,000 residents of a 39-square mile area in south Fort Myers, Lee County, Florida.

    The District operates four fire stations, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.  The District never closes and is always operationally ready to respond. Three shifts of 22 firefighters staff four fire engines, a 100 ft. Aerial Platform, one first out utility response pumper, two Advanced Life Support/Non-Transport quick response units, a small rescue boat, and two brush trucks. All of our firefighters are Emergency Medical Technicians; 43 are practicing Paramedics. 

    In 2022 our crews responded to 12,047 calls for service - including fires, rescues, medical emergencies, hazardous material events, and vehicle crashes.

    South Trail Fire & Rescue held their annual awards ceremony Monday night and we are pleased to announce the Employee of the Year went to Division Chief Cindi Gallman! Congratulations Cindi!

    2023 Firefighter of the Year, Captain Mack McMullen!

    She did it and we are so blessed that she did it with us. Division Chief Cindi Gallman has officially retired from South Trail Fire Protection & Rescue Service District as the Division Chief of Training/EMS. She bravely and selflessly dedicated 29 years to our district, the residents and visitors, and every employee. Her passion and drive was unprecedented and needed as STFD evolved. Cindi has left behind her wisdom and love for the job and we were all so honored to call her Chief, but most of all a sister and friend.

    Caught being kind and helpful! Through FB messenger, we had a appreciative message with pictures of Squad 63 crew and Battalion 60 helping change a tire for a person in our district. The person reached out to send a thank you and to make sure they knew how their act of kindness helped her out! We are always so proud of our firefighters and their compassion, especially when the person they help is the one that lets everyone know what they did. Keep it up!
