Englewood Fire Training Center

Englewood Fire Training Center is located at:

13400 Haligan Way
Englewood, FL 34223

This facility is used for firefighting training programs. The facility is served by a municipal water supply system that provides its drinking water.  There are no wells on-site. There is a retention pond surrounding the northern, western and eastern boundaries of the facility.

DEP conducted a site reconnaissance 4/4/19 and a preliminary site assessment during the week of April 15, 2019.  Samples of groundwater, soil, sediment and surface water were collected.  Based on the results of this initial sampling, onsite groundwater contamination by perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) has been detected above the EPA Health Advisory Level.

DEP will work with City of Englewood on the completion of the assessment and development of a cleanup plan to remove or contain the contamination to prevent environmental impact and human exposure.

DEP has advised the City of Englewood and the Florida Department of Health of these results and has directed them to develop and implement a community sampling plan.
