Department Information: The South Pasadena Fire Department is a small, single station fire department providing Fire and EMS service to the City of South Pasadena, Florida, and surrounding areas. South Pasadena is about 0.6 square miles, and contains one hospital, three nursing homes, and several high rise residential buildings. The population of the city is approximately 5,200 and the average age is just over 70 years. South Pasadena is bordered on the north by St. Petersburg, to the east by Gulfport, to the south by St. Pete Beach, and to the west by Treasure Island.

The fire department consists of 15 line personnel: 12 firefighters, who are also EMTs or paramedics, and 3 Lieutenants, all presently certified paramedics; and three administrative staff: the Fire Chief, Deputy Chief of Operations and an Administrative Secretary. Normal schedule for line personnel is 24 hours on duty followed by 48 hours off duty, but subject to mandatory recall to duty for minimum staffing needs in 12 hour increments.

Being a small department, all personnel must be capable of performing most firefighting functions, including apparatus operator. Our shift personnel rotate assignments on a regular basis to maintain skills in all areas. Cross-training and multi-function capabilities are essential in our personnel.

In fiscal 2017, the department responded to 3,427 emergency service calls, approximately 84% of them for EMS. Our general trend over the last two years has been a gradually increasing number of calls.

Located in Pinellas County, the South Pasadena Fire Department, like all Fire Departments in the County, is dispatched from one central location for both fire and EMS, and has automatic aid agreements with all other fire agencies in Pinellas County. With a standard set of basic SOGs known as the Pinellas County 600 Series, all the fire agencies work together in a functionally consolidated fashion. We regularly train with four closely adjacent and similarly sized fire departments since we routinely respond to fires with them.
