About Tamarac Fire Rescue

Tamarac Florida covers a 12-square mile area in western Broward County and is home to more than 65,000 residents and approximately 2,000 businesses. Ideally situated, Tamarac provides easy access to highways, railways, airports, waterways and a wealth of cultural and sporting activities. Tamarac’s median age continues to grow younger and the population more diverse, as people recognize the City as a great place to spend their lives.

Since 1975, Tamarac Fire Rescue has grown from one station to four stations. We are a 24/7 operation, managed by Fire Chief Michael Annese, Assistant Chief Jon Frasher, Assistant Chief Jeffrey Lopez, and Division Chief/Fire Marshal Tommy Demopoulos. The Community Risk Reduction Division consists of our Division Chief/Fire Marshal, Assistant Fire Marshal and three Fire Inspectors. This Division is responsible for the public education, community outreach and fire investigations.
