This Fire Chief will create and mold the Jupiter Fire Rescue Department (JFRD) into one of the country’s most prestigious fire and rescue departments. The Fire Chief needs to be a forward-thinking leader who collaboratively engages the workforce and community to develop and implement a strategic vision that ensures the continuation of daily high-quality public safety services for the Jupiter Community.
The Town of Jupiter Fire Rescue Department is an all-risk emergency response agency that protects its residents and visitors within the Town’s 23-square-mile area. The Jupiter Fire Rescue Department serves a diverse community of just over 61,000 residents as well as millions of visitors annually. The Town estimates it will take approximately three years to build the JFRD, and that the new department will include 93 positions - 18 staff and command positions and 75, 24-hour shift positions.
