Guys, it's been a while! Time for a Firefighter of the Week. Meet Firefighter/EMT Matthew Petitt!
Matt has been a Firefighter/EMT for North Port Fire Rescue for three years and is currently stationed at Station 85 on “B” shift. Matt grew up in Venice, FL before moving to North Port in 2007. His fire service career began in 2008 and he later volunteered with The Englewood Fire District for three years. Matt worked for the City of Venice Fire Dept. for 2 years prior to accepting a job with NPFR. Matt has promoted to the rank of Journeyman, is a state certified pump operator, has completed his fire officer 1 series and is working on completing his TRT (Technical Rescue Team) series. Matt plans to attend paramedic school in 2019. In his free time, Matt enjoys spending time with his longtime girlfriend and their two children, working on a seemingly endless list of acquired machinery, listening to live music and scuba diving.
Thanks for your hard work, dedication, and excellent choice of eyewear, Matt! 🙌
We're out at Cocoplum Village Shops between the Hair Cuttery and Sally's, near Publix. We're posing a new mystery question that we want feedback on. If you're out and about in the area, stop by to give your opinion, and get some free giveaways while you're there. We're here until 2 p.m.! #myplacenorthport #communityplanningmonth
We've been having a lot of fun visiting North Schools the past few days for National School Lunch Week. Thank you again to all of those who keep those bellies full. Even our friends at North Port Fire Rescue took part. Now they know how to eat! #heroeswearaprons
As the sun comes up Thursday NPPD Det. Officer Ralph Casselli stands guard at the Emergency Operations Center in Liberty County Florida. NPPD continues to help our neighbors in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael. Be thankful for everything you have.
Thank you for your service. Commander Pam Jernigan’s last day in the office after 20 years of dedicated service to the North Port Police Department and the residents we work to protect. More recently overseeing Criminal Investigations. Your leadership and monitoring of the office sink will be missed. We also hope that your stapler never goes missing in retirement. You deserve it!
