Pasco County Fire Rescue Finalize Merger with Zephyrhills Fire

PASCO COUNTY, Fla. – On Tuesday, Pasco County Fire Rescue supplied The Free Press with the following message and video for County Residents:

It’s an honor to announce the finalization of the merger between Zephyrhills Fire and Pasco County Fire Rescue

Today marks the final shift switch from Zephyrhills Fire Rescue to Pasco County Fire Rescue. Over the last few months, there has been a lot going on behind the scenes. Firefighters have trained on new protocols, facilities, and vehicles changed from the city to the county, and I.T. has been busy changing over computer and radio systems.

We recognize the contributions that Zephyrhills Fire gave to their community for over 100 years and thank Zephyrhills residents for their trust in Pasco County Fire Rescue. Starting as an all-volunteer department, ZFD saw a large amount of growth over the years. Today marks a new chapter in the cities history.

Zephyrhills’ residents now have increased staffing levels in their fire stations, and two ambulances stationed inside the city limits. The increased staffing will help with response times inside Zephyrhills and response times on the East side of Pasco County.

Pasco County Fire Rescue feels honored to carry on the esteemed reputation and service level to Zephyrhills residents. Thank you to everyone who worked tireless hours to ensure the merger of our departments went smoothly. We are #PascoProud to welcome our new family members to Pasco County Fire Rescue!
