Greetings from John McDaniel, Fire Chief
Photo of Fire Chief McDanielOn behalf of myself, my staff and the professional Firefighters of the DeLand Fire Department (DFD) I would like to thank you for visiting our website. Incorporated in 1882 DeLand is the county seat of Volusia County and home to Stetson University. The City of DeLand is proud of its deep historical roots in the early development of central Florida. The members of this community honor its past and work diligently to remember the vision of what is now a nationally recognized historical community.

The DFD has a diverse workforce consisting of 44 state certified firefighters and officers, a Fire Marshal, Fire Inspector and two professional staff personnel. Together, these men and women provide Fire, EMS, and Prevention services to approximately 26,000 fulltime DeLand residents. Because DeLand is the county seat, the daily population can grow to 70,000 people making DeLand an exciting and bustling community.

Services provided by DFD include fire suppression/rescue, BLS medical responses, plans review, fire inspections and numerous public education programs. The DFD also has many special teams and programs such as an Honor Guard, EMS Bike Team, CPR instruction and C.E.R.T. and child safety seat programs. There is more information on these programs and other fire prevention information throughout our website.

I encourage to you to take this opportunity to review our website as well as the entire city's to discover what DeLand has to offer. We are proud to be known as the “Athens of Florida” and I am sure once you visit our city you will agree that DeLand is a great place to work, live and visit. If I can be of any further assistance please feel free to contact me.  Please click here to contact Fire Chief McDaniel.
