The City of Weston contracts with the Broward Sheriff's Office Department of Fire Rescue and Emergency Services Operations for fire and emergency medical services.
Fire Rescue
The BSO Fire Rescue Department provides its services to the City's residents from three strategically located, City-owned stations, operated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A Broward Sheriff's Office Department of Fire Rescue and Emergency Services Operation's Assistant Chief is permanently assigned to the City of Weston and acts as the City's Fire Chief.
Weston is proud to have one of the few fire rescue departments in the nation to have thermal imaging devices on the engine or ladder in each of its stations. Thermal imaging devices enable firefighters to identify hot spots concealed in walls and ceilings, or behind doors, and to identify the heat of a body in a smoke filled space, making fire suppression and the saving of human with greater precision, speed and success.
Being a part of the Broward Sheriff's Office Department of Fire Rescue and Emergency Services Operations enables the City to have use of, at no additional expense, the resources of the Department's nine other stations, Fire Marshall service for building plan review, fire prevention, and fire investigation, hazardous materials unit, technical and confined space rescue unit, mass casualty unit, and airborne trauma evacuation.
