    Thank you Escambia Fire Rescue! Glad it didn’t get down on Davis. What a mess that would have been. Glad everyone is ok. We have the BEST First Responders! God bless each and every one of them.

    Years of being a truck driver, knowing what to do in emergency, etc. Do you think an 18 year old would know what to do?
