Operations

The Gulfport Fire Department’s primary focus is on fire prevention and suppression, however we are a true “All-Hazards” response agency.  We provide advanced life support first response on our ALS Engine Companies strategically placed around the City of Gulfport.

We partner with local and state agencies which allow us to provide service, not only to the citizens of Gulfport, but to citizens of the State of Mississippi.  We are a major participating agency on the Mississippi Task Force (MTF).   The MTF is funded by the Mississippi Office of Homeland Security and provides an “All-Hazards” response to the entire state.  The services we offer are:
