In 2005, 10 Orlando firefighters made the commitment to put together a bagpipe and drums band. At the time, only one member of the OFD, District Chief Mark Austin, played the bagpipes. But later that year, they played their first gig in the 2005 Citrus Bowl parade.
On December 11, 2009, the Orlando Firefighters Pipes and Drums played at the graduation of 58 new firefighter/paramedics for the newly formed San Juan Fire Rescue Department.
