Mayor Mallory thanks first responders after casino collapse

I want to congratulate the Cincinnati Fire Department and Police Department for their quick response to the collapse at the casino site on Friday.

They responded quickly and decisively to an extremely dangerous situation.

They treated and evacuated injured workers over a treacherous landscape getting them to the hospital for further treatment as soon as possible.

I have received numerous compliments and thanks about their response.

The event was a reminder of the dedication and professionalism of our fire fighters and police officers.

This is a clear example of the emergency readiness of our public safety team.
