C F O Patronis' Weekly Rundown newsletter

Floridians,

Firefighters are the heroes in our communities that keep us safe and put their lives at risk to save others. I’ve seen this courage, this selfless dedication to others, first-hand during my time in office. I’ve seen it at every fire station I visit, and I’ve seen it every day since Hurricane Michael made landfall. It’s no easy task to set aside your fears, to run into dangerous, uncertain circumstances while others flee to safety.

Last week, we honored and remembered those firefighters lost too soon – those lost in the line of duty. Their contributions will never be forgotten, and their memories will live on forever. The Fallen Firefighter Memorial stands as a tribute to the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice. This year, four names were added to this memorial: Jeffery Atkinson, Tallahassee Fire Department; Steven R. Terry, Hernando County Fire Rescue; Michael G. Camelo, Jr., Cape Coral Fire Department; and Daryel Richards, Hollywood Fire Rescue.

May their memory be eternal and may this memorial serve as a constant reminder of their sacrifice.

Sincerely,

Jimmy
