The power of partnerships extends to emergency planning.
Today, Mayor Buddy Dyer and City staff, along with the Orlando Fire Department and the Orlando Police Department, joined tourism and other community partners for an emergency response exercise.
“Often times, it’s believed that emergency situations are a fire or police department issue,” Mayor Dyer said. “But what we learned on June 12, 2016, is that these situations require every city department and many partners from outside of the city to handle a critical incident. Awareness and preparation are crucial to making sure our citizens are safe.”
