Fire Rescue
Hillsborough County Fire Rescue (HCFR) provides fire prevention, suppression and emergency medical services for the unincorporated areas of Hillsborough County. From its beginnings in the 1950s as an all-volunteer force, HCFR has seen many changes. Since hiring our first full-time career firefighters in 1973, the department has steadily evolved into one the largest, most progressive departments in the state, answering more than 80,000 calls for service per year.

Fire Rescue maintains 42 fire and one rescue station, and equips more than 980 career firefighters, paramedics and staff in addition to approximately 160 reserve responders.  HCFR also provides fire prevention inspections, fire investigations, fire safety programs and safety training to the public.

Fire Rescue has certified paramedic firefighters on most units to ensure advanced life support arrives on the scene of a medical emergency, even if a rescue unit has not yet arrived on scene.
