The room was filled with law enforcement personnel, first responders, employees and various agencies such as the Port Authority, Florida Department of Health, Florida Department of Transportation, School Board, Baptist Medical Center Nassau, among many, many others.
Chairman Justin Taylor expressed his gratitude to everyone for all their efforts and stated, "I know it was tough being away from your families and working hard for several days. I want the citizens to know that they were well taken care of should the storm had taken a catastrophic turn".
County Manager, Mike Mullin, echoed Chairman Taylor's sentiments, adding, "The public never gets the opportunity to see what happens at the Emergency Operations Center. If they did, they'd have an entirely different view. Sometimes the public feels irrirated whether it's a curfew that's been implemented or an evacuation order. They don't realize how many hours all these good men and women devote to listening to the Hurricane Center, to evaluating the information, to making decisions for the safety of the residents".
