Firefighters at Station 21 on Cross Creek Boulevard are welcoming a new Pasco County engine to their firehouse. Pasco County firefighters are using the station temporarily while their new home is constructed in Meadow Pointe.
The Pasco County team arrived about a week ago. They plan to enter their new Pasco County home in four months.
Pasco County assistant fire chief Chris Allend said that the Pasco engine would answer calls in the Hillsborough County portion of New Tampa if other engines were tied up and vice versa.
"It's a reciprocal type of arrangement," Allend said.
