PSFRD COVID-19 UPDATE – April 13, 2020

We hope all of our community members are staying safe and healthy. To keep you informed, here’s a quick status update of what is going on at PSFRD:

– Chief Burton and Assistant Chief Mortellite are working alternating schedules and are on call during this event 24/7.

– We have had no firefighters test positive for COVID-19 and our staffing levels remain adequate at this time.

– We have plans to put some non-traditional EMS units in service as the need arises. We experimented with this on April 8th and good lessons were learned from this effort.

– We continue to participate in frequent conference calls with County EOC staff, on the calls that involve all City and County entities, and twice a week calls with all of the fire chiefs.

– Our Medical Director continues to do live stream broadcasts on You Tube each Tuesday and Thursday that allow participants to pose questions during the broadcasts.

– We continue to provide meals for our crews as we want to keep them out of stores. We are using local small businesses for meals but it is getting harder to keep this business in the District as more restaurants are closing.

– Through cooperative efforts with ISPD, we have received two gallons of hand sanitizer from 3 Daughter’s Brewing in St. Pete for use by our crews.

– We are in overall in good shape with PPE, other than N95 masks.

We will continue to update you as this situation continues. Always feel free to reach out with questions or concerns.

In an Emergency you should Dial 911

9-1-1 is the fastest, most reliable way to get help in an emergency.  When seconds count… when they literally make the difference between life and death, this easy to remember 3 digit number provides immediate access to emergency personnel.  As soon as the operator determines what is happening and where – help is on the way, even if we continue to ask further questions.

However, when people abuse 9-1-1, or tie up phone lines with non-emergency calls, someone who really needs help may not be able to get through. Don’t put lives in danger.  Know when to “Make the Right Call.”

Some people aren’t sure when to dial 9-1-1.  9-1-1 is for Real Emergency Situations – when a response from police, fire or medical personnel is needed immediately.

Pinellas Suncost's 9/11 Memorial

“In Honor of the Fallen”

The much anticipated dedication of Pinellas Suncoast Fire & Rescue District’s (PSFRD) 9/11 Memorial took place on September 11, 2015. The program began at 9:30 a.m. in front of Station 27 at 304 1st Street, Indian Rocks Beach. In honor of the victims of the collapse of the twin towers, District Chief Dennis Furnell took part in a fire service tradition that dates back to the mid-1800s. Long before radios, pagers or fire alarms, daily announcements were sent from headquarters to firehouses by a system of bell commands and telegraph. When a firefighter died in the line of duty, headquarters would transmit five bell strikes, repeated in four series. This custom has continued through the years to this day. It is a form of rendering final honors to departed comrades. In the fire service this is known as “striking the four fives.”

The dedication featured comments from local dignitaries with former Chaplain of PSFRD, Retired Fr. Robert Wagenseil as the guest speaker. At 10:30 a.m., a “Flight of Souls” took place with Lt. Llanes of the United States Coast Guard circling over the dedication in a helicopter which flew out of the Coast Guard Air Station in Clearwater. The Memorial includes symbols representing the Pentagon, Shanksville, Pennsylvania, firefighters, and World Trade Center victims. “There will be no inscriptions on the monument itself as the symbolism will speak to the individuals who view it,” stated Marshall Eiss, co-chairman of the project. The Benediction was given by the Chaplain of PSFRD, Reverend Fr. Jon Roberts of the Calvary Episcopal Church.

PSFRD Fire Inspector Robert Hill designed and has acted as the general contractor for the Memorial. He also was in charge of the donation program which provided the funding for the project. The Memorial was completely constructed with donations from the public and no money from the Fire District was used.

May We Never Forget
