Another FAILED political promise from the incumbent...

He's had 4 years to plan for the safety of ALL District 1 citizens, but FAILS across the board for public safety. Stating he has a plan, just in time for the election, shows a lack of foresight and leadership into what is truly wrong with ECFR- Funding.

Now wait a minute he's right... There is continuity... The continuity of broke down trucks and #thankyouforyourservice

Out with Bergosh (and others)......he thinks a rescue should run his way by the push of a button or the flip of a switch.-especially if it makes him money. Continuity with him is him continually stalking the camera to stay in the media while Life risking Public Servants pledge to risk their lives just to hurry up and wait. The coveted money projections and dreams of rooftops in the sun has altered Bergosh's moral compass. God Bless Our Emergency Responders! Vote for the Firefighters! - vote to Save Lives! -they deserve the Best!

The sad thing is with the upcoming election, the county has approved overtime for grass cutting on Saturdays until September. But will not authorize any overtime to get the numerous firetrucks we have that are broken down fixed. Getting these trucks fixed is not as high of a priority as getting grass cut. Just my opinion.

"Scraps to run a fire department with, even when citizens are pulled from a fire."

🧯All that is given to the Fire Rescue budget are minimalized funding to just make it through. Whether its money moved into and then taken away, promises made for spending from discretionary funds- but actually coming from a minuscule budget, or claims of "pay raises" (Cost of Living Adjustments) that are unfunded, we work hard for you, everyday.

👨🏻‍🚒 In fact, last night, the West Pensacola station was first in at a structure fire a short distance from the station. There were reports of entrapment, but we always treat them all as such until WE search the building. The crew removed one occupant from the house with smoke coming from the eves and door, gave patient care to an awaiting ambulance, and extinguished the fire inside. You probably wont hear about this on the news. We aren't asking for praise. We are doing what is expected of us. "Saving Lives and Property," as our path implies.

🗣August 18th IS YOUR chance to help save lives and property, by voting out a Commisioner who has emphatically stated he will not support the fire department's request for funding increases.

🚫Instead, he attends only one fire districts' meetings and trainings, promising them items from a depleted budget and increases to equipment that cannot be maintained. He ignores Paradise Beach to play to the desires of another. We deserve better than that. YOU as citizens deserve better than that.

m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=721867468380249&id=483365362230462&sfnsn=moThese guys just Do.Not.Quit. Their trucks quit. Their pay raises quit. Their training, equipment purchases, funding, you name it, it all quits. The way Escambia County treats its fire, law enforcement, and EMS services is shameful. It takes a lot of nerve to brag about trying to bring "good paying jobs" to our county when we aren't even taking care of the people - and their jobs - that we count on the most. They ALL deserve better. WE deserve better.

Comment on Facebook These guys just ...

Definitely! Vote out any Commissioner that stays destracted due to looking for his own reflection -while on the clock. -Yep, we paid for that too! Put the taxpayer money where it belongs - saving lives FIRST! FIRST RESPONDERS and all of the Public Safety requirements. Not my District, but, my hope is for Owens! We need to break the "gravy train" chain of command that rules our elected leaders. Vote Owens, Vote for the Firefighters!
