Florida Praised by FEMA

By  | 

In a recent statement, FEMA spokesman Scott Morris said Florida has the best emergency response team in the nation.

Two years ago Hurricane Charley tore through Charlotte County, marking the beginning of one of the deadliest hurricane seasons in Florida history.

Charley didn't affect us here on the panhandle, but it did cause FEMA to set up a long-term recovery office in Orlando.

Morris says Gov. Jeb Bush has put a premium on hurricane readiness and response.

The spokesman says he thinks every level of government in Florida truly understands what their role is in an emergency.
