Private Duty Details
Private Duty Details are staffed with spare fire rescue vehicles, based on availability. If a spare vehicle is not available the day of the detail, due to other emergency vehicles being out of service, we will not be able to attend your detail and you will be notified as soon as this is known. Typically, we will know a day (24 hours) prior, but there is always a chance the morning of your detail that multiple vehicles need to be replaced for emergency service. The contact person will be notified that we cannot attend the event. Fire Rescue personnel are scheduled on duty 30 minutes prior to your event so they can check out their vehicle and arrive at your detail location in time for your event.
The Davie Fire Rescue Department is not obligated to provide Private Duty Details. The Fire Chief reservesthe right to decline a detail request for any reason. Every reasonable effort will be made to fill the detail request, but there is no guarantee it will be filled.

The Final determination will be noted on this sheet in the “No. Unit(s) Determined by Fire Chief /Designee” and a copy given back to the applicant for final written approval.

All Private Duty Detail requests shall have a minimum of three (3) hours billed, per person.
Personnel reporting time is 30 mins prior to the start of your event. This is so they can pick up the unit and beat your event at your starting time. This reporting time is added to your requested time.
An invoice will be sent after the completion of the detail or at the end of the month. In some cases, the applicant may be required to pay in advance at the discretion of the Fire Chief.
