No. The Town has partnered with PBCFR for almost 40 years to provide fire rescue and EMS services to its residents and businesses, and the service levels have been excellent. In fact, Jupiter’s citizen surveys have routinely shown that residents appreciate and have come to expect a very high level of service. Over those 40 years, Jupiter has grown in population, size and commercial make-up. When it came time to renew Jupiter’s interlocal agreement for services with PBCFR, the Council wanted to ensure that the residents and businesses of Jupiter were offered the highest levels of service at a fiscally-responsible and sustainable rate. Discussions with PBCFR combined with the findings in the CPSM study led the Council to ask a number of questions, and to weigh options for service delivery. The time is right to establish a JFRD that can provide the high levels of service our residents and businesses expect, while offering a reasonable amount of local control over financial and operational matters.
