West Palm Beach, FL – The firefighters, paramedics and other first responders of Palm Beach County pledged their support today for Adam Putnam for Governor of Florida.
“I believe that if we put Florida first, Florida can be the launch pad for the American Dream,” said Putnam. “But our vision for our state cannot be achieved if we don’t keep our people safe. These firefighters, paramedics and other first responders come charging when Floridians are in need, no matter what danger may come their way. I’m proud – honored – to have their support.”
The Professional Firefighters/Paramedics of Palm Beach County is the largest regional organization representing firefighters in Florida. It represents more than 2,500 members, eight Palm Beach County departments and six cities in Palm Beach County. Collectively, they answer approximately 180,000 calls per year and serve more than 1.5 million Floridians.
“On behalf of more than 2,500 firefighters and first responders in Palm Beach County, I’m proud to announce our endorsement of Adam Putnam for Governor. The most important responsibility of our state’s leadership is keeping our people safe, and he’ll make that the top priority. I know he’s got our backs, and we have his,” said A.J. O’Laughlin, a captain at Palm Beach County Fire Rescue.
Nearly 100 members of the organization and their families joined O’Laughlin and Putnam in West Palm Beach to make the announcement in front of a banner that read: “Palm Beach County Professional Firefighters and Paramedics Proudly Support Adam Putnam for Governor.”
Turning to face the firefighters who came out to show their support, Putnam said: “Thank you for your dedication to something larger than yourself. Our vision for our state would not be possible without you.”
