Palm Beach County Fire Rescue
Wellington has its Fire/EMS services provided by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue (PBCFR). PBCFR is an all-hazards department with the ability to respond to any emergency 24 hours a day. There are four stations located throughout the Village. Each station has six firefighters assigned to it 24 hours a day. The engine and rescue are staffed by three firefighters, each having a minimum of two paramedics, with the third being either an emergency medical technician or a paramedic. Both engines and rescues can provide advanced life support services, which means you may see a fire truck arrive at your house before a rescue truck which allows for potential life-saving measures to be initiated without delay. These four stations are part of Battalion 2, whose command staff consist of an EMS Captain, a Battalion Chief, and a District Chief located at Station 28 in Royal Palm Beach.
