Message From the Chief
The mission of Pinellas Park Fire Department is to protect the public by reducing or preventing personal injury or property damage due to fire, medical emergency, disaster or other life hazard by providing public education, incident prevention and emergency response services.
Firefighting in Pinellas Park dates back to 1912 when it was just a settlement of about 50 families. To protect their homes and property from the threat of fire, a small group of volunteers formed a 16-man firefighting unit.
