History of the Tarpon Springs Fire Rescue

Patch

City leaders wanted to show more of the heritage of the City in the emblem used as the City Seal. One of the Tarpon Springs Police Officers, known for his artistic talents, designed the emblem that depicts Tarpon Springs, its heritage, and the historical values in 1979. The emblem shows a water scene to depict the coastal community and importance of the mariner. On the water are several boats; one catching a Tarpon, the namesake of the City. Another boats symbolizes the sponge harvesting vessels that are a significant part of the history of the City's economy. Lighthouse Island, also known as Ancolte Island, is portrayed in the background with the sun setting in the western sky. The Lighthouse lights the way for all mariners to find their way home to Tarpon Springs. This artwork was adopted as the official Seal of the City of Tarpon Springs and the Fire Department incorporated it into the seal for the Fire Service, the Maltese cross shown at left, resulting in the patch used by today's Tarpon Springs Fire Rescue.
