From Emergency Management:  An independent fire district would work in Martin County and possibly provide savings, according to a consultant.

But whether a district ever is formed now rests in the hands of elected officials.

Martin County’s fire rescue now services unincorporated areas and Stuart’s services the city.

Sewall’s Point contracts with the city and Ocean Breeze contracts with the county.

Jupiter Island contracts with Martin County to supplement its public safety department.
