Buzz: County fire chief resigns

Escambia County Fire Rescue chief, Russell “Rusty” Nail, resigned today. Nail served less than year as the county’s fire chief.

He was hired in April 2018 after a nationwide search, and was selected from a pool of 77 candidates. He reported for work last May.

Nail came to Escambia County after serving as chief of Palm Bay for eight months.
