Pinellas Park Fire Station 35
11350 43rd Street North
Station 35 History
In 1981, after the construction of a new firehouse across town, temporary Fire Station #2 was almost closed down. Homeowners and business leaders successfully petitioned to keep the firehouse open around the clock. At that time, designation of the temporary station changed to Engine Company #3. Later in 1985, the designation was again changed when it became Engine Company #35 through a county-wide numbering system. As a result of a referendum to provide paramedic services throughout Pinellas County, a Rescue Company was added in 1980. Rescue Company #35 was discontinued in 1986 when Engine #35 assumed their duties with a paramedic assigned to the unit.
After almost 20 years as a temporary station, Engine Company #35 moved into new quarters at 11350 43rd Street in 1994. The new firehouse was built at a cost of $975,000. It is also the headquarters for Fire Administration.
