From responding to emergencies at the Bippity-Boppity-Boo Boutique, to rescuing a downed princess, the Reedy Creek Professional Firefighters isn’t your traditional fire service. RCPF serves the Reedy Creek Improvement District, the exclusive government agency of Walt Disney World properties in Florida, providing all fire and emergency services for 38.5 square miles, which encompasses four theme parks, two water parks and more than 40,000 hotel rooms – a daunting task for any fire service. Firefighter-paramedic Rick Spence vividly remembers the day he climbed 12 flights of stairs to the top of Expedition Everest, a rollercoaster at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, to rescue a woman after the ride became stuck.
