Hot Job: Pasco Searching for Next Fire Rescue Leader

The Pasco Board of County Commissioners is launching a nationwide search for the future Fire Chief of Pasco County.  This rare opportunity to join our award-winning Pasco County Fire Rescue Department opens as Chief Scott Cassin announces his retirement, effective later this year.

“I want to thank Chief Cassin for his ten years of leadership and dedication to the men and women of Pasco County,” said Pasco County Administrator Mike Carballa.  “During his tenure, we’ve seen extraordinary growth in our community and our fire department.  Chief Cassin has boldly led the organization, and his vision to innovate the department will have a long-lasting impact.”

Pasco County is committed to finding the best candidate to lead the department and inspire our dedicated team members, and Chief Cassin’s continued leadership will help ensure a smooth transition for our community.  Our search over the next few months will include a thorough review of applicants and interviews with the top candidates.
