Tavernier Fire Station

IMG_1377Children are raised at a young age learning about bright red fire engines, fire stations, firefighters, & Dalmatian fire dogs via school field trips or visits to their school.

Here at the Tavernier Fire Department you can find two very different tributes to firefighting:

1) Stroker was a Dalmatian given to the Tavernier Fire Department in memory of a former firefighters. The plaque in front of the fire station reads: “Stroker” the Dalmatian 1990-1996 Our faithful friend who was given to us in memory of Derik Smith a T.V.F.D. firefighter. Both are gone-but not forgotten.

2) In the featured photo you can see a very unique vintage portable fire hydrant on wheels.

You can find this old-fashioned portable fire hydrant and the tribute plaque for “Stroker” the Dalmatian at Mile Marker 92.0 bayside. Turn onto Jo Jean Way and then immediate left onto Marine Avenue going only .1 mile on your left.
