Fire Suppression Bureau
Suppression's primary tasks are to expeditiously rescue, locate a fire,
confine it to the point of origin, extinguish it, salvage undamaged property,
and overhaul the fire to prevent rekindle. Additionally, we respond to
hazardous materials conditions to stabilize the incident with help from
the Pinellas County Hazardous Materials Team. The Department's Special
Operations personnel are trained in many tactics to support the various
types of emergency incidents.
