On Wednesday March 31, 2021 Southern Manatee Fire Rescue District honored Fire Marshal Leslie Adent’s 31 years of service to the District. Leslie was one of the last firefighters from the Oneco-Tallevast Fire Department that eventually merged with Tallevast FD to become Southern Manatee Fire Rescue in 1990. Leslie has served this community honorably in all the positions she has held and the last ten (10) years as Fire Marshal. Leslie takes with her a host of knowledge, skills, and abilities that will not be easily replaced. We all congratulate Leslie on a well deserved retirement.
