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 22 firefighters staff four fire engines, a 75 ft. Ladder, two Advanced Life Support/Non-Transport quick response units/SUVs, a small rescue boat, and two brush trucks. All firefighters are Emergency Medical Technicians; 37 are practicing Paramedics.

    " Who We Are and What We Do"

    State of Florida - Office of the Governor (Executive Order Number 20-69)


    *Road Closure/Structure Collapsing* Brookshire Lake Blvd at Daniels Pkwy is closed due to portions of the road on the small bridge collapsing. The road and sidewalk is closed to all vehicles, bicycles and foot traffic. Thank you so much to the person who put up cones and immediately called 911. If you see something happen in your neighborhood, always say something.

    South Trail Fire Department is highly discouraging homeowners to burn any storm debris. The landscape debris is very “green” and is causing smoke that is aggravating medical conditions and causing false calls to 911. Be a good neighbor, hold off on any burning.

    Don’t call 911 for the Tesla in the ditch. South Trail Fire Department responded to a Tesla on fire on the back of a tow truck at Six Mile Cypress Pkwy and Michael G Rippe Pkwy in front of Sun Harvest. This electric vehicle had previously been submerged in saltwater from Hurricane Ian surge. When batteries of electric vehicles heat to the point of fire, it takes hours of copious amounts of water to extinguish. Our local roads and traffic congestion never need that blocking roadways and our firefighters and engines need to be helping people. So, command decided to soak the vehicle in water for the next day or two to be sure it is extinguished. Please do not call 911 to report the car, we know, it just needs a good cooling soak.

    South Trail Fire District is excited to announce the promotion of Jared Formosa to the rank of Engineer. Engineer Formosa will be the Engineer for A-shift, Engine 61

    South Trail Fire District is excited to announce the promotion of Jason Pigott to the rank of Engineer. Engineer Pigott will be the Engineer for B-shift, Squad 63.
