William "Trip" Barrs, Fire Chief
Treasure Island Fire Rescue has been responding to fires, emergency medical incidents, hazardous materials spills and many other types of emergency incidents since 1949. We truly are an “All Hazards” emergency response organization. Our Department is also responsible for Emergency Management during times of man-made and natural disasters. Treasure Island Fire Rescue is staffed by full-time firefighter/paramedics twenty-four hours a day using a rotating three shift system.
Treasure Island Fire Rescue is equipped with one Class A 2000 gpm pumper, one Class A 1500 gpm pumper/squad, a 4-wheel drive quick response rescue vehicle, 4-wheel drive utility vehicle, a fire chief’s vehicle, a Sea-Doo water craft with a rescue sled and a beautifully restored 1927 American LaFrance pumper.
Our Department has the distinction of being the first in Pinellas County to provide advanced life support services. In addition to our own department staff and equipment, a county-wide automatic aid agreement provides Treasure Island with two engine companies, a ladder truck and a District Chief from neighboring departments on all first alarm structure fire responses. Responses to EMS calls are made using our on-duty personnel in an Advanced Life Support vehicle. Sunstar, the county's ambulance contractor, provides patient transportation to a medical facility if required. We are an Insurance Services Organization (ISO) Class 2 fire department.
