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.
