Flomaton Police Chief Credited With Saving Family From House Fire

April 30, 2015

The Flomaton, AL, police chief is being credited with saving a family from a house fire Wednesday afternoon.

Smoke was already pouring from the attic of the home on Titi Street, according to Flomaton Fire Chief Steve Stanton, when Police Chief Bryan Davis was the first to arrive on the scene just seconds after the fire was reported. Davis was able to beat on the door and yell to get the attention of the two adults and five children inside the home and get them out before they were injured.

The fire damaged the kitchen and attic of the home, Stanton said.

The Flomaton, Friendship and Pineview volunteer fire departments responded to the blaze, along with the Century Station of Escambia (FL) Fire Rescue, Escambia County (FL) EMS, the Flomaton Police Department and the Escambia County (AL) Sheriff’s Office.

There were no injuries reported.

    Thank you Flomaton Police Department and Flomaton Fire Department for the wonderful job you do. You have helped my family many times. May God truly bless you for your kindness. You are the BEST.

    That must mean the Chief was out patrolling, id est, DOING HIS JOB! Flomaton hasn’t had a Chief that did that in years. “To Protect and Serve.” Chief Davis did both in this instance. Probably once a month or every six weeks there is something strongly positive written about the Chief and the Department. Council members and Mayor, take note, it seems you have a good Chief this time. Don’t foul things up for the town.
