Early on in his first term, Sheriff Ford had to respond to the devastation of Hurricane Michael. Hear about the lessons learned from that tragedy and how he has taken on the role of chairing the FSA Task Force as a way to give back to those sheriffs who helped him, and his community, recover in their time of need.  We also discuss ways in which all Floridians should get prepared for hurricane season and the steps needed to keep your loved ones safe.
