South Trail Fire & Rescue District


    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 25 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. ALL district fire engines/trucks/pumpers/rescues provide Advanced Life Support level of care for medical emergencies. 

    In 2023, our crews responded to 11,148 incidents - including fires, rescues, medical emergencies, hazardous material events, and vehicle crashes.

    We are proud to announce this year's winners in our training and performance categories. Captain/Paramedic Brett Ezell earned Outstanding Paramedic Dedication, Captain/Medic Shawn Robinson earned Fire Instructor of the Year, and Firefighter/Medic Stephan Jonas earned EMS Instructor of the Year. All of these individuals consistently put in the work to make sure our firefighters are highly skilled and trained to best serve our community.

    The South Trail Fire Protection and Rescue Service District (STFD) is currently conducting a Community Risk Assessment (CRA) and Standards of Cover (SOC). We are asking residents and businesses, civic associations and places of worship in the district to help with this process by completing this survey, which will assist the District in determining community expectations. The link to the survey is below, and attached to the email is the QR code that will take a person directly to the survey. If you live in our district, own or operate a business/association in our district, or know of anyone or any business you can share this link or QR code with…please do. Comments will not be linked to individuals but compiled with the collective group feedback and used to help guide the process. The survey should take less than 15 minutes and will be available until 5:00 PM on August 2, 2024. Participation in this survey is voluntary, and all questions are optional. We greatly appreciate whatever answers or feedback you choose to share. We are asking that if you have the time, you and any of the residents of the apartments that wish to, please complete the survey.

    South Trail Fire & Rescue is proud to announce that Captain/Paramedic Brian Zeller was announced to be the Employee of the Year!

    Members of South Trail Fire & Rescue volunteered with Wreaths Across America to lay wreaths, say thank you and have a private moment of silence with veterans that are buried at Fort Myers Memorial Gardens. It was an honor to have those private moments of thanks to those that gave so much for our country.

    South Trail Fire & Rescue participated in the American Veterans Traveling Tribute ceremony this morning at Lakes Park. The crew from station 63 and Assistant Chief David Bollen were honored to be part of the ceremony to place a wreath at the 9/11 tribute. It was humbling to be able to honor all who served and who made the ultimate sacrifice.
