01/27/16 - Governor Rick Scott Deploys 15 Trucks From Sunshine State To Assist Washington D.C. With Blizzard Clean Up

~Trucks Display Message Encouraging D.C. Residents to
Visit Florida~

Governor Rick Scott dispatched a 15-truck convoy to Washington, D.C. from the Sunshine State to assist in recovery efforts from the more than 20 inches of snow that blanketed the city during last weekend's blizzard. All of the deployed dump trucks are wrapped with a friendly message for D.C.'s snow-covered residents and business owners to VISIT FLORIDA.

Governor Scott said, “Florida is glad to help Washington D.C. dig out from the snow I have seen on my visit here this week. Our state will provide 15 dump trucks with a message of ‘Sunshine’ (CLICK HERE) to encourage residents as they clean up and recover.”

Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) Director Bryan W. Koon said, “Coordinating assistance for Washington, D.C. provides a great opportunity to test the flexibility of our resources and methods.  While snowstorms are something we wouldn’t typically expect here in Florida, we are always willing to lend a helping hand to our northern neighbors.”
