Panama City Beach Fire Rescue Hosts Open House for the Community

News

The community was invited to get a behind the scenes look at the job of a Panama City Beach firefighter. The department held its annual open house at their main station 31 on Panama City Beach Parkway. Kids could meet the first responders and participate in fun activities like a kids combat agility test to see how firefighters train. The department also got a chance to show off their new ladder truck.

“We’ve got food for them, we’ve got T-shirts, little helmets…they can squirt water over there and play with the fire hose, so it’s something the kids get to do that they don’t get to do on a regular basis,” said firefighter and EMT, Garrett Jackson.

The event was originally scheduled for October, but they postponed it until today with the anticipation Hurricane Nate hitting last month.
