Pensacola Firefighters Recognized for Helping Clean Up Scenic Bluffs
The Pensacola City Council presented the city’s Beautification Award Thursday night to members of the Pensacola Fire Department who have participated in the Scenic Bluffs Beautification Project.
Volunteers from the Fire Department have participated in numerous clean-up and beautification efforts along Scenic Highway during the past three years, helping to create impressive vistas of Escambia Bay, as well as a safer environment within the 42-acre Bay Bluffs Park.
“Cleaning up Scenic Highway and Bay Bluffs Park has been my mission since I came onto Council,” said City Councilwoman Maren DeWeese. “The Pensacola Police and Fire Departments have been behind that effort 100 percent. Scenic Highway and the Bay Bluffs are a treasure for all of Pensacola to enjoy.”
Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward, who was not at the council meeting, later thanked the firefighters for their efforts.
“The men and women of the Pensacola Fire Department are committed to this community,” Hayward said. “Their volunteer efforts have made a significant impact along Scenic Highway.”
Members of the Fire Department who participated include David Poss, Chris Eadler, Mark Snyder, Rick Simmons, Phillip Hoffman, Nate Edler, Joe Glover, Gabe Fernandez, Matt Schmitt, Max Hoffman and John Bartholomew.
