about Miramar fire-rescue

The City of Miramar Fire-Rescue Deparment was established as a volunteer service in 1955. Volunteers were notified by the sounding of a civil defense siren located on top of City Hall.

In 1956, the Fire-Rescue Department consisted of thirty volunteer members and a women's auxiliary. Miramar's first fire engine was delivered in October 1957 at a cost of $15,000.
