The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department (MDFR) provides fire protection and emergency medical services to the unincorporated parts of Miami-Dade County, Florida, along with 30 municipalities located within the county.[2] In all the department is responsible for 1,883 square miles (4,880 km2) of land.

Air Rescue[3][edit]

The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue (MDFR) Air Rescue Bureau provides regional air medical services, search and rescue, aerial firefighting and tactical support to MDFR operations, to those of local municipalities and government agencies at the state and federal level.

MDFR helicopters transport severely injured trauma patients to state approved Level I trauma centers. Flight crews are trained in additional tactical disciplines necessary to deploy personnel and equipment in search and rescue missions, firefighting operations and reconnaissance on large incidents such as wildland fires and catastrophic events.

Current Fleet[edit]

Air Rescue operates four Agusta Westland AW139 helicopters. Each aircraft is equipped with the following:

  • Patient loading systems normally configured allow the transport of two critical-care patients, with the option to reconfigure for up to six patients in Mass Casualty Incidents (MCIs).
  • An external hoist for helicopter-borne rescues.
  • An external high-power searchlight, "The Night Sun," is used for night operations.
  • MCI Command and Control suitable radio suite.
  • Night Vision Goggle compatible lighting.

During the dry season, each aircraft can be configured with a Bambi Bucket for firefighting / water-operations.

All four helicopters are housed at MDFR fire stations located at both Miami Executive Airport and Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport.[4]

Urban Search And Rescue (USAR)[edit]

Main article: Urban Search and Rescue Florida Task Force 1

The Miami-Dade Fire Department is the founding member of one of Florida's two FEMA Urban Search and Rescue Task Force.[5]Florida Task Force 1 (FL-TF1) is available to respond to natural or man-made disasters around the county and world and assist with search and rescue, medical support, damage assessment and communications.[6]


In the early 1980s two fire departments, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue (at that time known as Metro-Dade Fire Rescue) and the Fairfax County Fire & Rescue Department, operated under an agreement with the Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) of the U.S. State Department to provide international search and rescue assistance in times of disaster. During these early years, assistance was provided to the countries of Mexico, Philippines and Soviet Armenia.

In 1991, FEMA incorporated a US&R team concept into a federal response plan. Over 20 teams were geographically chosen throughout the country, with local public safety departments as sponsoring agencies. Today, under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) there are 28 national task forces staffed and equipped to provide 24-hour search and rescue operations following earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, hurricanes and other natural or human-caused disasters.

As many as 15 people are without a home after a residential building went up in flames late Tuesday night in North Miami Beach.

Crews arrived at the scene near the 2600 block of Northeast 182nd Terrance after the fire was called in just after 10:30 p.m. and spent more than five hours fighting flames.

No injuries were reported.

“I imagine we lost everything,” said Eduardo Altamirano, who salvaged some diapers, his granddaughter's doll, some pills and other odds and ends.

Flames burst out for a second time about an hour after being put out, forcing firefighters to return.

“It’s not unheard of, especially when you have multiple void spots, which is multiple hidden areas that we have a hard time accessing,” Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Christopher True said.

Fire rescue investigators have not released any information on what caused the fire to start, but four families have reportedly been displaced.

Miami Beach Fire Department: Recruit Class 17-01

The house was noisy and I went to the barn to sleep in the hay. The uncle also had a cow, but by mutual agreement, they gave it to the neighbors, on the condition that we take milk from them. They turned out to be good people and kept their word. Therefore, there was enough hay in the barn.
