When a natural disaster occurs, we tend to focus on the immediate needs of those affected however, the struggle for these individuals and their families continue long after disaster strikes.  The 2018 holidays are fast approaching and will be a tough time for the 911 Center/Dispatch Center personnel and their families. Many will have little to provide during a time when the rest of us will be able to enjoy as usual.  Please join us as we help the 911 Center/Dispatch Center Personnel and their families, provide a little comfort and happiness in their lives during this holiday season.  Florida NENA has launched a fundraising effort that will do just that, allowing you to be a part of making someone's struggle a little easier. The Florida Chapter of NENA is selling Florida Strong Challenge Coins for $20.00 each, plus $2.00 shipping & handling. All proceeds will go towards providing much needed items during the holidays.
