STARKE, Fla. – Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis met with Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) Teams at Camp Blanding today during prepositioning for Hurricane Dorian response.

CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “I was proud to meet with some of the dedicated men and women of our Urban Search and Rescue Teams at Camp Blanding to discuss logistics and needs in response to Hurricane Dorian. Eight Federal USAR teams and six State USAR teams have been activated to respond to specific regions affected by this storm. These highly-trained teams are ready at a moment’s notice to conduct life-saving missions after a disaster. I cannot thank these heroes enough for their hard work and dedication to protecting our communities.

“As we continue to ensure Floridians recover from the impacts of Hurricane Dorian, I'm advocating that we do everything possible to provide aid to those in the Bahamas who felt the devastating and tragic impacts of this powerful storm.”
