Escambia County Professional Firefighters Local 4131 is slated to be only the second union in the Country with a private residence available for burned out families. Escambia County has a fire problem average one working structure fire every 29 hours so you can imagine the need for shelter is ever-present.
Partnered with Potential Church and Complete DKI our members have been working to get the house ready for occupancy hopefully this fall. Families will be able to stay in the house for a two week period free of charge after suffering a significant fire at their house. Everything they will need to have a little normalcy in their lives will be in the house for their use.
A handful of local business have stepped over and are helping with the construction and remodel phase of this project. Without their help we would not be able to realize this dream.
More to come.
