    • 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 55-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. Three shifts of 21 firefighters staff three engines, a 75-foot ladder truck, and two rescue trucks. All firefighters are Emergency Medical Technicians; 23 are practicing Paramedics. Most district fire trucks provide Advanced Life Support level of care for medical emergencies. 

      In 2015 our crews responded to 8,472 calls--including fires, rescues, medical emergencies, hazardous material events, and vehicle crashes. Average response time was 4 minutes, 48 seconds.
