The City of Orlando thanks the media for their support, understanding and patience as we continue to work on notifying the families of the victims of this tragedy and as our Orlando Police Department, State and Federal agencies work to investigate this incident.
Please know we will continue to provide updates and respond to media inquiries to the best of our ability to keep you updated and informed as we are able to share information.
We are asking for your help to allow access for public safety vehicles and ambulances to ensure the continued care of our citizens and public safety operations.
To help the City, our local medical organizations and our Orlando Police Department, State and Federal agencies continue to do their jobs. We are asking that the media locate in the designated media staging areas only.
The locations are as follows:

Please park broadcast vehicles in any and all available on-street parking.
Smaller vehicles should park in area garages to allow for broadcast vehicles to utilize the on-street spaces.
Media may continue to report from the sidewalks, but we must keep all streets clear to ensure access for ambulances and emergency vehicles.
