    If only the 5 talking heads would fully staff them like should be! They’re too busy trying to pad a retirement when 1st Responders are hoping to be able to afford health insurance when they retire!

    These new pieces of equipment are definitely going to be put to work. I have worked with Engine 7´s crew before and will continue to work with them. Before these apparatuses were even shown to the public, we had seen pictures of the apparatuses and knew they were going to good stations. We are putting our hard work in for the citizens of Escambia County and will always fight until the battle is won. And remember if you´re having a real emergency and need help, CALL 911.
