MOORE HAVEN — Many of the county and other officials who gather in the event of an emergency also meet for a postmortem after every activation of the Emergency Operations Center, which is housed in the Glades County Fire/EMS station in the Public Safety Complex. The discussion of lessons learned and potential shortcomings during the Hurricane Dorian brush-by over Labor Day weekend took place Wednesday morning, Sept. 11, followed by a luncheon for all participants. Glades Emergency Management chief Angela Colegrove also complimented media representatives for the role they play in keeping the public informed during emergencies.
