As the spring break season ends and summer begins, the firefighters assigned to Pensacola Beach ramp up their coordinated training for water rescue. This year, all 3 shifts met, swam, and coordinated with the returning and new Public Safety Lifeguards. 🏖🌊🏊‍♂️

Each department provides a variety of capabilities. The Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key stations provide Jet Skis for rapid surf response and rescue of swimmers in distress. The lifeguards on Pensacola Beach provide fixed towers and patrols to swim out to the swimmers. A coordinated effort with the two agencies provides a combination rescue effort of staffing and resources.

Both beaches also have Paramedics assigned, allowing for Advance Life Support care once the victim is removed. Just another service provided to the citizens and visitors of Escambia County! 👨‍🚒

Both beaches have already been busy this year with numerous water rescues. Follow the flags and always swim near a lifeguard. DO NOT ENTER THE WATER IF YOU SEE SOMEONE IN DISTRESS. This usually makes you a victim also. 🚩🚩🚩

You guys are awesome 👌

We regret to pass on that a New Haven (CT) Firefighter has died in the Line of Duty and another is critical this morning.

Firefighters received multiple calls of a fire on Valley Street around 1245 hours. When they arrived, they had heavy fire and the members rescued two residents who were trapped inside the house. During the fire, a Firefighter reported becoming disoriented and lost in the building...he and another Firefighter were then found unconscious on the second floor of the building.

Remember fallen brothers...

Happy International Firefighters Day!

May 4 is the feast day of St Florian, the patron saint of firefighters. St Florian was the first known commander of one firefighting squad in the Roman Empire. He lost his life, as well as those of his colleagues, for protecting the same humane ideas which firefighters all over the world share even today.

Firefighters in most European countries celebrate their day on 4th of May as a ‘Day of Fire Service’ as well as St Florian’s Day. This date is also known as St Florian’s Day worldwide and has been tradition for more than 150 years in Europe.

We serve you, our citizens, and take this time reflect on our heritage. Take a minute to say a pray for our safety and protection.
