***The Fire Fee Assessment page was updated on 5/5/2015***


On behalf of the Lehigh Acres Fire Control & Rescue District, I would like to extend my deepest thanks to the Lehigh Acres community for supporting the Fire Fee Assessment on November 4, 2014.  As a result of the positive outcome, we will be able to maintain our response times, all stations will remain open, and our ambulance transport service will remain with the Fire District.  In addition, the level of Fire/Rescue services throughout the community will remain consistent with current practices.  The Fire Fee Assessment will allow the Fire District to grow and continue to meet the future needs of the community.  Lehigh Acres is growing rapidly and public safety is vital to any growing community.  Thank you for “Getting the Facts,” listening to us, believing in us, educating yourselves on the issue, and voting YES on the Fire Fee Assessment.  The citizens have spoken, you value the services that we are able to provide to you and you want to maintain the current level of Fire/Rescue services within your community.

Thank you for allowing us to continue to serve you for years to come with PRIDE, COMMITMENT, and INTEGRITY.


John R. Wayne, Fire Chief
