Welcome home to the eight PFA members that were deployed with Colorado Task Force 1 in response to Hurricane Laura. The members made it home yesterday afternoon after spending about a week in Louisiana. The team checked on residents and evaluated damaged structures.

The team made a very special stop at the Oklahoma City National Memorial on the return journey. According to their website, "The memorial and museum commemorate those who were killed, those who survived, and those changed forever by the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building – as well as the world’s response in its aftermath."

Thank you to West Metro Fire Rescue, the sponsoring agency, and the many other task force members from states across the nation that assisted in the response.

Chief Swoboda here –

In the 1700s, Jonathan Swift said, “falsehood flies, and the truth comes limping after it.” A variation of this quote is even more relevant in our digital era: "A lie travels around the globe while the truth is putting on its shoes.” In a culture where context is often absent from breaking news and speed beats accuracy, it's incumbent on police leaders to actively provide information and address community concerns quickly.

Silence and waiting are not winning strategies. At Fort Collins Police Services, we want to build a long-term relationship with our community through strong communication, and we regularly share best practices to help other police agencies navigate difficult situations. A national online publication recently invited FCPS to provide guidance and recommendations on how to effectively communicate during times when all facts are not apparent and investigations are just getting started. We are very thankful here in Fort Collins to have Kate Kimble and the Public Information team helping keep our community informed while events are unfolding.
