   Jacksonville Fire/Rescue Station #1, affectionatly known as "THE ROCK", is located in downtown Jacksonville.  It is one of JFRD's busiest and largest stations', housing Engine 1, Ladder 1, Rescue 1, The Command Van, Safety 1* (CommVan SF-1 CUT for BUDGETARY REASONS) and Fire 1 (Battalion Chief).

     The men of The Rock are responsible for a very diverse first due territory.  Besides the many residences and small businesses, we have a large industrial area, as well as the Jacksonville Ship Yards.  We are 1st due to Downtown's high rise district which includes the 37 story Modis Building and 43 story Bank of America Building.  We also have the sports complex which includes Alltel Stadium (Home of the Jacksonville Jaguars, The Florida/Georgia game, The ACC Championship Game, The Gator Bowl and Super Bowl XXXIX), The Baseball Grounds (Home of the Jacksonville Suns) and The Veteran's Arena (Host to our local hockey team, many concerts and our annual Guns N Hoses Boxing Event).  Also, going through our 1st due territory is Jacksonville's elaborate Skyway system, which is an elevated monorail that travels above the city through Downtown, San Marco, and parts of the Riverside area of Jacksonville.
