PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Citing inflation and higher gas prices, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says he’s giving first responders another round of bonuses.
The governor was in Ponte Vedra Beach on Thursday to make the announcement.
Like last year, all first responders in the state — fire and police — will receive $1,000.
Officer Ricardo Ranger with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office was among those from various law enforcement agencies in Northeast Florida who were with DeSantis as he made the announcement about the bonuses. For Ranger, the $1,000 will go a long way.
