Operations (Ops)

The mission of the Operations Division is to provide quality, cost effective emergency and non-emergency services to all citizens and visitors within the City of Seminole and the unincorporated greater Seminole service area of Pinellas County, while maintaining the safety of our response personnel.

The City's Fire Rescue Department has earned a Public Protection Classification rating of 1 by the Insurance Services Office. The Department is responsible for responding to calls for medical emergencies, fires, hazardous materials incidents, technical rescue incidents, a variety of public assist requests and providing medical coverage for community events. The Department operates from four fire stations strategically located throughout the community. The City employs sixty nine firefighters, thirty-four of whom are paramedics. Personnel staff four Advanced Life Support (ALS) engines, one Advanced Life Support (ALS) squad, one Basic Life Support (BLS) 105 ft. ladder truck, and one District Chief vehicle.

Through a partnership with the city of Madeira Beach, the department provides contract fire protection services and Emergency Medical Services for the towns of Redington Beach, North Redington Beach, and Redington Shores. The department also provides fire protection and emergency medical services through a contract with the Bay Pines Veterans Administration.

The City's Fire Rescue Department participates in the countywide Pinellas County Hazardous Materials Response Team (PCHMRT) by providing trained Hazardous Materials Technicians and command staff for this team. The PCHMRT is made up of personnel from five fire departments located throughout Pinellas County.

The Assistant Fire Chief oversees all field operations and manages the Operations Division. The firefighting and medical services force is divided into three shifts each with twenty-three employees assigned. A District Chief manages each of the three shifts and a Lieutenant manages each crew. During 2014 the Pinellas County 911 center transferred 11,319 calls for assistance to our Fire Rescue Department. Eighty four percent (9,483 incidents) of these service requests were for medical assistance, including vehicle accidents while the remaining sixteen percent (1,836 incidents) were related to fire alarms, fires, hazardous materials responses, public assists, etc. The average emergency response arrival time after dispatch district wide is four minutes and thirty seconds (4:30). Many incidents require multiple units to respond. The current service area includes approximately 85,000 residents and covers twenty-five square miles.

The men and women of the City of Seminole Fire Rescue Department take their jobs and individual responsibilities very seriously. Their dedication to excellence keeps the Department's performance among the best in the State of Florida.
