Emergencies Call 911
Our Mission is to preserve life, property and the environment by providing prompt and professional services in the event of fire, medical emergency or any other event which threatens the public welfare.
To grow with the needs of our community through the expansion of services; striving to provide excellence now and in the future.
Customer service is the foundation of the District’s mission and vision. The service level objectives will continue to increase most notably in the areas of emergency response, special operations, life-safety inspections, and special event services. These service level increases will create impacts on training development, time management, equipment, supplies, and maintenance as well as District staff.
The District’s positive relationship with other fire departments, Santa Rosa County government and other independent fire districts will continue to be further enhanced in an effort to provide the most effective emergency services response to the Holley-Navarre area residents.
The Holley-Navarre Fire District began as the Holley-Navarre Volunteer Fire Department in 1965 by a group of concerned citizens with no equipment or funding source. The department operated from 1965 until 1980 using borrowed equipment and was funded solely by donations. In 1980 the Holley-Navarre Fire Protection District was created by Florida Special Act 80-603, which was later amended by 81-485. The first act (80-603) established the fire district as an Independent Special Fire Control District, set forth the boundaries and established a funding source through non ad-valorem assessments. The second act (81-485) merely clarified the district’s boundaries.
The HNFD is a full time fire department, meaning that fire, rescue and emergency services are provided to the community with full time staff providing 24 hour a day coverage.
The Fire District covers approximately 50 square miles in the Southeast corner of Santa Rosa County. Bordering upon the Okaloosa County line on the East and West end border is near St. Sylvester’s Church near Holley by the Sea, encompassing all of Navarre. The HNFD also covers the communities of Holley and Harper. The northern boundary is the Yellow River Bridge.
