Inter-local agreements are maintained with eleven (11) local municipalities and volunteer fire departments. The county's budget provides for some financial assistance to provide equipment. The local volunteer fire departments allow us to utilize additional man power as needed.

There are a total of twenty one (21) Paramedic/Firefighters and fifteen (15) EMTs/Firefighters. All EMS units are staffed to a minimum of one (1) EMT/FF and one (1) Paramedic/FF.

The Marianna Fire Station located on County Road 267 was a joint collaboration between the City of Marianna and the Jackson County Board of County Commissioners to provide a fire station to the distribution center and surrounding areas.
