The BRENT VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT proudly protects 25000 night & 50000 day people living in an area of 4 square miles. We operate out of 1 station that protects a commercial and residential areas. Our department is a public department whose members are on a combination of paid and volunteer status. The Brent Volunteer Fire Department was established in 1948 in response to the local school burning down. The Brent community banded together and with a surplus Navy fire truck the Brent Fire Department was born. We cover about 4 square miles with a population of about 25,000 people at night and about 50,000 people during the day. Our area is about 70% commercial and 30% residential. We are located in Escambia County (Pensacola) Florida. We respond out of one station with three pumpers and one heavy rescue squad. We are a combination department of about 20 volunteers and a 24 hour career crew of 4 firefighters working three shift rotation. We are always in need of volunteers. If you live in the Brent area please support your community, come and volunteer. We have an ISO rating of 5.
