Hello,

Our current fee schedule includes charges for patient transports only. Service calls like the type you are referring to are paid for by fire assessment and/or ad valorem taxes.

Dear Chief Kane,
As a result of the call in Century Village this week where Broward Sheriff’s Fire Rescue sent a ladder truck to get the videographer who threw his camera onto the roof.
Several readers have inquired as to what fees the public pays on a 9-11 call for services if any from BSO Fire Rescue?
Thanks,
Howie Levy
