Closing Hernando County (FL) Fire Department to Hold Auction

A Hernando County fire department is shutting down after 40 years of service.

The department, which serves a 55-and-over community, doesn’t have enough certified volunteers anymore, so the county’s fire rescue will take over.

Everything the department has is tagged and going up for auction. That includes fire trucks, an ambulance, fire gear and a lot more.

“They are going to sell the cabinets believe it or not,” Fire Chief Joe Curcio said. “Everything goes. You come in here with a big enough truck, you could load it up, take it somewhere, and open up a fire department.”

The auction is set for July 25, but you can check everything out at the firehouse the week before.
