Message from Fire-Rescue Chief: Robert E. Palmer

Chief Robert Palmer
To our residents, businesses, organizations and visitors thank you and

I take great pride in the fact that I have been a part of the Miramar Fire-
Rescue family for over 26 years and I would like to take this opportunity to
share a little bit of what the Chief's Office does with you.

The Chief of Fire-Rescue ensures that the Department's mission and vision statements are carried out and is responsible for providing the overall direction and leadership of the organization while ensuring the highest level of professionalism from Department members.

As the Chief, I am responsible for ensuring City and Department policies, rules and regulations are being followed, managing the Fire-Rescue annual budget and capital improvement plan and pushing the requirement objectives every Department member to participate in a continuous and complex training program, which, in turn, affords the City of Miramar and its residents with the most advanced and experienced firefighter/paramedics possible.

I am humbled everyday by the commitment, pride and professionalism exhibited by the members of Miramar Fire-Rescue and I am honored to be part of something so, in my opinion, unrivaled. 

We have a unique opportunity afforded to us in the work we do to truly change lives and I believe we accomplish that every day whether it be responding to an emergency, educating children on fire safety or handing out meals at one of our local senior centers. 

Thank you for putting your trust in the Miramar Fire-Rescue Department, it is well placed, we will handle it with care.
