Pasco County Fire Rescue is set to mark the grand opening of Fire Rescue Station 28 in Land O’ Lakes – our newest station serving Central Pasco.  Join Fire Rescue leaders and Pasco County officials at a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday, February 23, 2024.

The station is centrally located and will house EMS supervisors who’ll provide direction and oversight for field operations in emergency situations.  The station includes a “Decon Depo” where firefighter gear and equipment are inspected and cleaned to get rid of cancer-causing carcinogens. The station will also be home to a fire engine providing advanced life support to the community.

Pasco Fire Rescue will also be hosting a ‘push-in’ ceremony the same morning, at Station 16, to unveil our newest engine serving the Zephyrhills community.
