Calls may be anonymous

Palm Bay Fire-Rescue has made arrangements to use the CRIME LINE as the ARSON HOTLINE. If you have information on possible causes of recent fires, call the hotline, which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Caller should state:

  • The date.
  • The location of the fire.
  • Any other information the caller feels is pertinent.

All tips on the hotline will be researched. Rewards are possible for those who leave their names. The information does not necessarily have to be about fires in the Palm Bay area. If anyone knows information about fires in other areas of the county, they may call the hotline and leave the information.


This toll free hotline number is through the Florida Forestry Arson Alert, Inc. Program. You can also call this number for information leading to the arrest of an arsonist. In the event you require additional information, please contact the Division of Forestry or Office of the Agricultural Law Enforcement at (800) 342-4869, anytime day or night.

Station Tour / Safety Speech

Tours are scheduled based on the availability of station personnel.  Keep in mind the summer is popular for tours as well as the month of October, which is Fire Prevention Month. The sooner you can schedule your tour, the better the chance you will be able to reserve the time and station you wish to visit.

Hours for tours of the stations are 10:00am - 4:00pm, with some exceptions for Scouts, who generally meet in the evenings. Fire personnel can also come to your pre-school/school, if schedules permit. Remember, book your tour as far in advance as possible as tours are first come, first served.
