The PARRISH FIRE DISTRICT

WHO WE ARE

The Parrish Fire District is an Independent Special District located in northern Manatee County. The 
district provides fire protection to 10,000 residents over a predominately rural area, with one fire station, 
11 career firefighting personnel, 3 staff employees, and 10 volunteer firefighters. Parrish is faced with 
significant growth today and continuing in the near future. We value the community partnerships that have developed and we look forward to growing our community bonds.
