Due to the uncertainty and concern from Hurricane Sally, Chief Financial Officer and State Fire Marshal Jimmy Patronis announced that two urban search and rescue teams, with approximately 100 fire service members each, will deploy to the panhandle. They will provide services such as search and rescue, medical care, and damage reconnaissance, as well as equipment. A third search and rescue team is on standby for Tallahassee, and Escambia and Santa Rosa County were both declared to be in a state of emergency, as advised by Governor Ron DeSantis.
“These dedicated and highly trained first responders will bring lifesaving equipment and resources to support these communities following what is likely to be a large-scale flooding event.” said Patronis.
