Jupiter Fire Rescue Department...A Beacon of Excellence
JFRD WILL PROVIDE LOCAL CONTROL
Creating the new JFRD will allow the Jupiter Town Council to have local control over costs, operations, and levels of service. It will also allow the Council to make fiscally-responsible decisions on behalf of Jupiter’s residents and businesses, and will significantly decrease the cost of fire rescue and emergency services compared to what is charged by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue (PBCFR), currently and into the future.
CULTURE OF EXCELLENCE
The Town of Jupiter has established a culture of excellence in regards to public safety. The Jupiter Police Department sets this benchmark every day, and JFRD will start its service from a position of excellence on day one.
The Town estimates that JFRD will begin service on October 1, 2026. The Town will receive fire rescue and EMS services from PBCFR until that time under the current interlocal agreement.
