St. Petersburg Fire Rescue hosted a life jacket giveaway at the City of St. Petersburg Municipal Beach in partnership with the City of St. Petersburg’s Aquatics Department and the Suncoast Safe Kids Coalition. 75 children received life jackets and enjoyed a safe day at the beach! Special thanks goes out to Pinellas County EMS for providing the life jackets! This was our second life jacket giveaway this year, with a total of 225 life jackets distributed. We hope to host a few more this Spring/Summer.
