Ride Along Program

The Ride Along Program provides individuals the opportunity to ride as a guest on a Rockledge Fire Department vehicle. Citizens wishing to participate in this program must be a minimum of eighteen years old, or sixteen years old with parental consent.

Please obtain and fill out the Ride Along Waiver Form and submit it to our administrative office located at the Department of Public Safety, 1776 Jack Oates Boulevard, Rockledge.
