Holiday Park Fire Department was established in 1963, when the Holiday Park area began to grow at such a fast pace that several individuals had the foresight to begin a department that could provide quick fire service to the immediate area. Since that time, the men and women of the department have worked very hard to make sure the equipment used is the latest that technology has to offer and the best training available is provided. We believe that safety for our residents and firefighters is our number one goal.
In the year 2011 Holiday Park Volunteer Fire Department responded to 696 calls, 375 fire calls and 321 medical calls. Be sure to look at our stats for 2012 to see what we have done so far this year.
