Panama City, FL –
MARIANNA, Florida (WMBB) – For the third year in a row, Jackson County Firefighters hosted a feast in Madison
Marianna Fire Rescue also joined in to show her support, but before they could even settle in, duty called.
“We had a small fire. There was one in the Malone area, ”Jackson County Paramedic Fire Lt. Davin Davison said. “As local volunteers, they reacted first before us and they launched a pretty aggressive and offensive attack and we were able to get there and help them. I pulled it out pretty quickly.
Davison went straight from putting out the fire to putting food on people’s plates.
“The food was good. It was a blessing, you know,” said Rodell Pete, a party attendee.
Davison said the first year they hosted this event, more than 100 people showed up. But the number has declined due to covid-19.
“We don’t have as much choice this year as we usually do, but we have the mainstays: the potatoes and gravy, the turkey, the ham and all that good stuff,” Davison said.
Davison said they were preparing less food than usual, but this year’s Thanksgiving feast was still spread across three tables. Almost 40 people went to get a plate.
“Oh, I had turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, a pot of green beans. You know what I mean? It was pretty cool, ”said Pete.
Davison said they were doing this for the community. They love the county and want to show their appreciation in any way they can.
“Yeah, well done to, you know what I’m saying, Jackson County Firefighter,” Pete said. “We like you all, man. They don’t let us burn the man. Our city looks good. Do you feel me man? They did it. Town hall over there, man, well done to all of you. Man, can you feel me? Yeah, I’m getting out of here man. God protects you.”
The crews said they were giving all the leftovers to the elderly and those without transportation.
