The City of Indian Harbour Beach is justifiably proud of its 100% volunteer fire department with approximately 30 members. They are your neighbors and friends ranging in age from their 20's to over 50, and come from all walks of life, from mechanics to teachers, to engineers, retirees and businessmen. The Indian Harbour Beach Fire Department was established on May 11, 1965, and we believe it is the finest volunteer fire department in Brevard County, if not the entire state of Florida. The fact that it is 100% volunteer saves our citizens a sizable number of tax dollars each year. Not only do they volunteer their time and services to help protect life and property in the City but the firefighters also formed a corporation, which, over the years, has purchased state of the art equipment (e.g. AEDs and thermal imagery cameras) and fire trucks all of which has been donated to the City.
The Indian Harbour Beach Volunteer Fire Department Corporation conducts an annual fund drive to help the volunteers continue providing our citizens with state-of-the-art firefighting capabilities. Their requests for donations are mailed to all homes and businesses within the City each year during October (Fire Prevention Month). They never solicit by phone and caution residents to be leery of phoned requests for donations by other firefighting groups whose monies never benefit our department. If you encounter such a person, please call the Indian Harbour Beach Police Department at 321-773-3030.
