All of this response is planned out carefully before the day even begins. When bad things happen, a well thought out plan works. Sadly, when people are having a bad day, our mutual aid system works and works very well. From the dispatch center personnel to all the personnel working in the field, it is a total team effort.

Our brothers and sisters that wear the police badge deserve a huge round of applause for their efforts. The police dispatchers, and a whole lot of people who work behind the scenes from the bus drivers to the Public Works employees and far too many other groups to name all came together to make a very bad situation go as smoothly as it possibly could.

We salute all of you! Stay safe out there!
