As thousands traveled to spend Labor Day weekend at the world’s most beautiful beaches, law enforcement officers were busy. As both the Bay County Sheriff’s Office and Panama City Beach Police increased their patrols, the Panama City Beach Fire Department says they prepared just as they would every day. “You can never predict what’s going to happen when we come to work here,” said Firefighter EMT Trent Poe. Poe has been with the department for three years. He says the holiday weekends don’t impact their call volume. Instead, the entire summer season is busy. “It’s truly the same. Especially in the summertime, we always have a big influx of people in the summertime,” said Poe.
