|Station 12 is our primary station located on Chaires Cross Road across from Chaires Park.
This station houses both Chaires Capitola Volunteer Fire Department as well as two firefighters, one Lieutenant and two apparatus from the Tallahassee Fire Department and one ambulance from Leon County EMS. The station is manned 24 hours a day by two paid firefighters from the Tallahassee Fire Department and a paramedic crew from LCEMS who initially respond to any emergency in our 72 square mile area. The Volunteer Firefighters then respond from their homes to the scene to assist the patient or assist with firefighting. In the case of a fire some volunteers would respond to the station to pick up our emergency vehicles to respond them to the scene.
