Media Relations Office
Monday - Friday: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue (MDFR) Media Relations Office provides lifesaving public safety information to the residents and visitors of Miami-Dade County, while promoting increased community awareness of the many services the Department offers.
It is the policy of MDFR to proactively engage and work with the news media, within the guidelines of HIPAA, Florida Public Records Law, and the procedures set forth in our Standard Operating Procedure. As a matter of policy, MDFR will provide information to the fullest extent possible without compromising patient privacy rights, investigations, or public safety.
While mitigation of emergencies remains MDFR's first priority, MDFR continues to strives to deliver pertinent incident information to media outlets in a timely manner. However, it is during times of breaking news that MDFR staff is busiest mitigating incidents. MDFR asks members of the media to please restrict the number of "after-hours" calls to the Fire Alarm Office to those only dealing with breaking news incidents.
We urge you to follow MDFR on social media. We continuously update information pertinent to incidents, press conferences, MDFR events and more.
