Senator Dave Aronberg To Make Inquiry Into State's Emergency Preparedness

in Wake of Ex-EOC Chief Resignation

State Senator Dave Aronberg (D-Greenacres) , chairman of the Senate Military Affairs and Domestic Security Committee, issued the following statement today regarding the recent changes at the Division of Emergency Management.

"In the recent wake of yet another attempted terrorist attack over American soil, I have serious questions about the impact the alleged actions of the previous interim director may have had on the Division of Emergency Management, its resources, and our preparedness.

"To that end, I have sent a letter on behalf of the committee to the new interim director David Halstead with a series of questions intended to ascertain the readiness of his agency in the wake of recent top personnel changes and any resulting vulnerabilities. Depending on the information we receive, our committee may request Mr. Halstead's appearance at an upcoming meeting."
