Fire Department Response During The Parkland Shooting, Hurricane PTSD & Summer Camp

Jun 6, 2018

Sun Sentinel reporter Megan O’Matz recently reported on new public information that the Broward Sheriff's office delayed the entrance of fire department medics into Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school during the February Parkland shooting. O’Matz joined Sundial with Michael Moser, the public information officer for the Coral Springs Police Department, to talk about the incident report filed by the deputy chief for Coral Springs fire-rescue after the shooting.

Cognitive scientist Dr. Anthony Steven Dick and FIU Psychology Professor Dr. Jonathan Comer both found a link between events like Hurricane Irma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in children. They recently presented their findings to members of Congress and joined Sundial to talk about their research.

And lastly, summer camp: Rhonda Smith is the founder of a specialty camp and non-profit called Fit Kids of America; Lauren Butler is on the Education Division Board for the Urban League of Broward County, which hosts the Summer Enrichment Program; Emily Cardenas is the director of communications at Miami-Dade’s The Children Trust. They joined Sundial to talk all about summer camp.
