DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: Delray Beach PD) — A dozen police officers and firefighters are deploying to two areas in Florida that were hardest hit by Hurricane Irma.
On Wednesday, Delray Beach Fire Rescue sent two captains, two drivers and two firefighters on an engine and a rescue truck to the middle Keys. On Thursday, a sergeant and five officers from the Delray Beach Police Department will head to the Naples area.
“When our state faces such widespread devastation, we have to help each other,” Interim City Manager Neal de Jesus said. “I’m glad the city of Delray Beach can step up to offer a hand to those most in need, and I am proud of our men and women who are willing to leave their families again to answer this call for assistance.”
