Bat-Free, Pasco Fire Station 39 Reopens
The station was evacuated earlier this month because bats had invaded the building.
PASCO COUNTY – Firefighters moved back into Fire Station 39 on Wednesday (June 21) about 12 days after they evacuated the building.
The building, 1630 County Line Road in Hudson, was temporarily closed after it became infested with bats.
Pasco County officials said all bats have been removed and proactive measures have been taken to ensure that the bats will not enter back into the living quarters through any of the pre-existing openings, which were sealed. The station was cleaned and disinfected and all ceiling tiles that were affected have been replaced.
Pasco Fire Rescue is also allowing the station commanders to keep the bay doors shut to deter any bats from entering the bay area.
