Ocala Fire Rescue Presents 2017 Annual Report to the Community

(OCALA, Fla.) August 16, 2018 – Ocala Fire Rescue is proud to present the department’s second annual report to the community, showcasing the milestones, achievements, and progress made in the year 2017.

Molded by the dynamic nature of the fire service and its demands, Ocala Fire Rescue has continuously served this community since 1885. For more than 133 years the department has evolved to satisfy citizen’s needs. The year 2017 was no exception, in fact, it was noteworthy, marking the initiation of construction for Fire Station #7 (completed earlier this year), a rebuilding project, and improved Insurance Service Office (ISO) fire protection rating to Class 2, among other accomplishments.

“The public knows we offer fire and emergency medical services, yet Ocala Fire Rescue’s menu of services is plentiful,” said Public Information Officer Ashley López. “It is our hope that through this report the public gains insight into the many ways in which we are available and able to serve.”

Complimentary copies of Ocala Fire Rescue’s Annual Report to the Community will be available at the department’s Administrative Office (3001 NE 21st St.), while supplies last.
