Than you to all the amazing firefighters that assisted us residents at the sandbag location this weekend. I was filling mine, loved the workout, while I could hear you all helping people, your great attitude painted a smile on my face. Community at it's best! Thank you for all you do, it nevers goes unnoticed. Stay safe!

🙏🚒 Seminole County Fire Department Firefighter Connor Fernandez was in a serious off-duty motorcycle accident with another vehicle on Friday, September 16 at around 1:30 p.m. The collision happened at West Lake Brantley Road and West State Road 436 in Altamonte Springs. We have a close-knit Fire Department, and our firefighters have been in touch with Connor’s family and at the hospital since this happened. We know he has sustained serious life-threatening injuries and is in critical condition. We are devastated, but hopeful and doing everything we can to support Connor and his family during this difficult and uncertain time.

Connor is 25 years old and has proudly served the citizens of Seminole County since 2020. He serves as a “floater” firefighter (i.e., is at various stations) in our “Battalion 1” area, which covers mostly Altamonte Springs/Apopka area and is our busiest Battalion in the County.

Below is information about upcoming blood drives that fellow Firefighter Justin Esteras is organizing with OneBlood for him this Thursday.
