Honor Guard

Formed in January 1986, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue's Honor Guard represents the department in rendering honors to firefighters killed in the line of duty. The Honor Guard also represents the department at other local ceremonies and events such as parades, grand openings and flag presentation ceremonies. 

Pipes and Drums

The "Pipes and Drums Corps" comprise the Band Battery element of the Honor Guard. These members specialize in playing the traditional bagpipes and drums. Since being added in late 2001, the Pipes and Drums Corps have been one of the most popular elements of the Honor Guard Team.

Reserve Battalion

Dedicated to supporting PBCFR, the Reserve Battalion is comprised of approximately 60 members. The Battalion provides Light and Air support, firefighter rehabilitation, assistance at structure and brush fires, and assistance to fire investigators. Working closely with the Training Division, the Reserves provide support during live fire training scenarios.  The PBCFR Reserve Battalion engages in the community by providing medical standby for public events like Crossing for the Cure, the Wellington Holiday parade, Veterans and Memorial Day ceremonies, and the City of Westlake's Independence Day ceremony. The Reserves also provide support to the annual Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program.  PBCFR's support of Reserve Battalion training provides a pathway to a successful firefighter career. Many members progress to full-time firefighters with PBCFR.​

Cadet Battalion

The PBCFR Cadet Battalion is a youth program designed to give teens between the ages of 14-19 an opportunity to learn about careers in the fire service.  While most of the youth who join the program want to become firefighters, this goal is not required. All cadets learn the value of helping and caring for others while also developing strong leadership skills.  The PBCFR cadets meet weekly for fire and EMS training.  They also​ use this time to plan for participation in many community and charitable events throughout the year.  The PBCFR cadets are excited to host the Annual Cadet Fest once again in January 2023, after a two-year hiatus due to COVID. This event invites other cadet programs throughout the state to train at PBCFR Headquarters. Cadets will have another opportunity to train with other cadets and firefighters from around the state during a fall retreat to Orange Springs, FL.  Each year, all their training is put to the test during the Winter Fire Games, a competition organized by the Florida Fire Chief's Association Cadet Section.
