Lake Countyʼs Fire Rescue Division made important strides this year providing exemplary fire protection service. The Countyʼs rapid population growth prompted the most visible changes for the Department, including the addition of 21 firefighters, five tankers and a new pump truck. A new Fire Marshal/Fire Investigation Section was formed to oversee the inspections and investigative efforts of suspicious fire cases. The County also moved into the final design phase for construction of four new fire stations near Minneola, Lake Jem, the Florida Turnpike/State Road 19 area and the Paisley/Lake Kathryn area to serve residents in the coming years.
The American Heart Association honored Lake County as a “Heart Ready County” for its pro-active program to place and track automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for public access, and for its proactive CPR/AED training program for County employees. Separately, the County was issued an improved fire protection rating by the Insurance Services Office (ISO). The ISO, which surveys properties to evaluate the fire protection capabilities of local governments, issues ratings used by insurance companies to assess commercial and residential fire risk. Lake County Fire Rescue was also honored by several local civic groups for its service to the community this past year.
