Police departments and emergency responders all across Florida have been working tirelessly to help those in need after Hurricane Irma blasted down on the entire state. In an uplifting moment amongst the devastation, the Fort Lauderdale Police Department photographed one of its own officers napping with his K-9 counterpart.
Officer Kenneth Somma is seen lying on a cot, holding the paw of his K-9 partner, Eddie, as they both nap. The candid moment between the two partners couldn’t be sweeter.
The Fort Lauderdale Police Department shared the photo on their social media platforms with the caption, “#WeAreInThisTogether #HurricaneIrma.” It’s a nice reminder for anyone affected by this storm that there are people — and animals — out there working hard to keep you safe.
Florida Governor Rick Scott spoke to Today about the efforts the state is taking to help get water and food to those people in shelters. “Everybody’s working their tail off,” he told Today.
