The most visible part of the fire department is the Operations Division. This division is directed toward fire suppression and emergency medical services, which include personnel that respond to a variety of fires, medical and trauma emergencies, and other emergencies which pose a threat to life and property. Crews working 3 24-hour shifts are ready day or night to respond at a moment's notice.
Currently there are 44 personnel, 27 paramedics and 12 EMTs. Personnel operate out of 2 fire stations with 5 administration employees based out of Station 1, and 12 line personnel on 3 platoons between the 2 stations. There is a paramedic ladder (L1) at Station 1 and a paramedic engine (E2) at Station 2. Each station houses an advance life support (ALS) unit for the transport of sick and injured persons. There is a shift supervisor - battalion chief - assigned on each shift for 24 hour supervision of personnel.

Blood Pressure Checks
We offer free blood pressure checks seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. You may simply stop by one of the stations listed above.
You can schedule a tour of the fire stations for your scout group, preschool and school class, church group, civic group or if you just want to bring the kids down to see the trucks. It is best to call before and schedule a time and date that would be best for both you and the firefighters.
To schedule a tour you need to call our Administration Office at 813-757-9131, they will need the following information:
The date and time you would like to visit the station.
Which station you would like to visit.
Number of children and their age's.
Please Note: We don't remove a response vehicle from service for tours. Therefore,if you arrive at the station and there is no one in the station, it is because they have been called to an emergency. Please remember our first priority is to assist the citizens of our community in emergency situations. We appreciate your patience.
