Starting on April 1st, Rescue 21 (R21) will be the “first-out” unit responding to medical calls from the Tierra Verde Fire Station. This allows Engine 21(E21) to remain as a “rescue” in case a second call takes place on the Island. Both units will be staffed with 2 personnel and will be able to provide paramedic level patient care. In the case of a fire incident, E21 will respond with all 4 personnel, if available.
In the unlikely situation where a fire call comes in while R21 is on a medical, E21 will respond as a “rescue unit” with 2 personnel. Should this occur, the 2 firefighters will be able to assist on the fire ground with any medical issues, perform exterior firefighting, prepare for interior firefighting operations and a host of other duties based on the situation. Except in rare cases, Florida’s “2-in, 2-out” rule for firefighters will not allow our 2 firefighters to conduct interior firefighting until a second unit arrives. This is for the safety of our firefighters.
This new deployment is in response to concerns within the community and should provide for a higher level of service. In the interest of better serving the community, we will continually monitor this new deployment model and make recommendations to the community and Pinellas County Public Safety.
BARRIER ISLAND PERMITS:
Residents can continue to receive the Barrier Island Permits on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 10am until 2pm at Fire Station #21 located at 540 Sands Point Drive. Please call the station prior to coming to confirm that we are in the station. The number is (727) 864-6709.
On Saturday, April 4th our crews will be participating in the Island Chapel’s Easter Egg Hunt at the Baseball Fields and the Tierra Verde Car Show in Downtown Tierra Verde. We will NOT be issuing permits at the fire station that day. However, we will have a booth set up at the TV Car Show from Noon until 3pm for the purpose of issuing permits. So stop by the car show, have lunch, have fun & get your permit.
We still have a few openings in our next CERT Course. Please consider your role in a disaster & join us. The Lealman Fire District will be offering a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Basic Course in April at Eckerd College. We have had several Island residents take the training and would encourage everyone on the Island to participate. CERT members assist first responders during times of disasters and learn valuable skills like disaster medical operations, search & rescue, fire safety & extinguishment, and more. CERT members also learn a great deal of information to better prepare and respond to a disaster. Please consider your role in better preparing your community to handle a disaster.
