Population & Response Area
The City of Cocoa Beach Fire Department (CBFD) serves approximately 3.5 square miles of residential and commercial area, as well as providing basic fire protection for the "Thousand Islands", the area adjacent to Cocoa Beach, in the Banana River. The 3.5 square miles of land mass is unique in shape in that it is a barrier island approximately 6.5 miles in length and approximately 1.7 miles wide at it widest point. The CBFD serves a population of approximately 12,800 residents, as well as the influx of tourists and visitors which causes the population to rise to an average of 30,000 people a day during the tourist season.
