History[edit]

In 2000, Escambia County Fire Rescue was established to add career personnel to the fire protection ranks. The volunteer fire departments and ECFR were consolidated in 2008 to create a “combination fire department.” Today volunteers and career personnel work together to provide emergency and non-emergency services in Escambia County.
