"On Land and Sea We Answer the Call"


Hope Town Fire & Rescue is an all volunteer fire department operating on the island of Elbow Cay in the Abaco Chain of the Bahamas Islands. Our department is totally funded by donations from our community and visitors to our island. Our primary response area covers Elbow Cay and Tilloo Cay, although we run mutual assist calls with Lubbers Fire Department, Marsh Harbour Fire Rescue, Man-o-War Fire Rescue and Guana Rescue.

HTVFR works closely with Bahamas Air Sea Rescue Association, the only search and rescue operation in the Bahamas (also all volunteer). At any given time our department is responsible for the safety of over 400 homes, 3 resorts, 4 marinas with fuel facilities and countless visiting boats. The resident population of Elbow Cay is approximately 500 persons, and with rental homes and hotel accommodations this can jump to over 1000 people during the season.

The volunteers of Hope Town Fire & Rescue thank you for visiting our site. Please check back often as we are constantly updating our site.
