September 16, 2020

National Guard troops were deployed in Escambia County to assist with Hurricane Sally rescues.

Florida Sen. Doug Broxson said that 125 members of the Florida National Guard were deployed in the county along with high water rescue vehicles. The vehicles were staged at the Escambia Fire Rescue Stations in Molino, Beulah, Ensley, Myrtle Grove, Warrington and the Pensacola fire station on North Davis Highway. The vehicles can be driven through several feet of water.

Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, the National Guard used the vehicles to respond to multiple calls throughout the county alongside Escambia Fire Rescue.

    Pam, maybe you could contact the police department or maybe call the three major hospitals which are West Florida Medical Center on Davis highway, Sacred Heart Hospital and Baptist Hospital. The police department should have a number or list to inform family members of people’s conditions. Hope your son got somewhere safe and is doing well.

    Live in Madison, MS, and trying to get information on my son that lives at 511 W Chase St. in Pensacola. No word from him since yesterday, and fear he is under water.
