This page has been developed to provide the residents of and visitors to East Lake with information about what you should know in case a man-made or natural disaster threatens our community.


We provide the following services to the community of East Lake:


        CPR Instruction

        Fire Extinguishers Instruction

        Fire Safety Surveys (for local businesses)

        Fire Safety Week Programs (October)

        Home Safety Inspections


For more information about these programs please call 727-784-8668.


Remember that at a time of crisis East Lake Fire & Rescue may be so overwhelmed with numerous calls that response times will most likely be longer than normal.  This is a good reason why you should be prepared to handle emergency situations on your own until help arrives.  By connecting to the websites below you will find expert information on how to prepare for anything from hurricanes and terrorist attacks to wild land fires.
