As of Friday, volunteers at Escambia Fire-Rescue’s Ferry Pass station are being joined by career firefighters.
The action’s based on a couple of residential fires on Good Friday. No truck from Ferry Pass, the closest station, responded to either because of a shortage of volunteer firefighters.
“Ferry Pass is one of our busiest stations, said Commissioner Grover Robinson, in whose District-4 the station sits. “In fact, we have about five other stations, if we added them all together, they would make as many calls as they do in Ferry Pass.”
