Escambia County Fire Chief Rusty Nail sent this following letter rescinding his resignation:
TO: Amy Lovoy, Interim County Administrator
VIA: Matt Coughlin, Interim Public Safety Director
FROM: Rusty Nail, Fire & EMS Chief
RE: RESCINDING Letter of resignation- Fire & EMS Chief position with BOCC
DATE: April 30, 2019
County Administrator Lovoy,
Good afternoon. Many changes have occurred since my resignation in early April, and in good conscience I cannot leave my position or departments without a succession plan. Uncertainties regarding future direction make it even more critical to stay involved.
Other factors include the obvious show of support from the Escambia County BOCC towards not only County-wide improvements, but also initiatives aimed at improving the County’s emergency services. These are all great undertakings that will benefit the citizens for decades to come.
Hearing the new County Administrator’s vision for the future; I hereby rescind my resignation as Fire & EMS Chief.
Respectfully submitted, R.C. Nail
