<p>Station 34 is located at the cross roads of the county. Just west of the Florida Turnpike and just south of State Road 80/US 98. Station 34 is Battalion 3 Headquarters and has a Battalion Chief, District Chief, Engine, Rescue, Brush, and Light/Air support unit.</p> <p>Centrally located protecting parts of these major roadways as well as the South Florida Fair and Expo grounds, numerous large apartment complexes, senior condo complexes, gated communites, light to medium commercial/industrial complexes, a gas pipe line, a high school, a middle school and three elementary schools. We also back up three busy stations that surround our area as well as PBIA. </p> <p> Station 45 was put into service in August of 1992 due to the increasing number of responses into the Kings Point/Villages of Oriole area of Delray Beach. This area was originally serviced by Station 42 on Hagen Ranch Road, but with the increasing amount of calls it was evident that the single Paramedic Rescue unit from 42 (R42) could not handle the additional workload. The original station was run out of a single-wide trailer located at 15127-A Jog Road, behind the Kings Point Shopping Center. Initially, one Paramedic Rescue unit (R45) was staffed with 2 personnel. Eventually, a second Rescue was added to the station (R45B). In 1999, a permanent station was built at 15450 Jog Road, between the entrance to the Floral Lakes development and the Normandy entrance to Kings Point which is about a mile south of the old station. In mid 2004, a Paramedic Rescue-Engine was added (RE45), increasing the minimum daily staffing to 8. Today, the units from Station 45 respond to approximately 6600 calls yearly (combined between all 3 units), making it the busiest firehouse in the County. We cover approximately 30,000 residents in about 4 square miles. About 2/3 of the residents are seasonal, so we are much busier in the "season" (November-April) than in the rest of the year. <p> The Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Volunteer Battalion provides supplemental staffing for the spectrum of public service functions of Palm Beach County Fire Rescue (PBCFR). Volunteer members assist in fire prevention and suppression and investigation, pre-hospital emergency medical services and related public education. Volunteer members operate under the direction of PBCFR administration and officers when supplementing PBCFR manpower. </p> Basic Life Support (BLS)Advanced Life Support (ALS)Brush Fire unit75' LadderAdvanced Life Support (ALS) Transport UnitBasic Life Support (BLS)Advanced Life Support (ALS)Basic Life Support (BLS)Advanced Life Support (ALS)Basic Life Support (BLS)Advanced Life Support (ALS) Special Operations 19 is a custom built 2001 Ferrara Intruder Heavy Rescue.
