  • Gov. Rick Scott visited Miami for a Zika virus preparedness discussion with local leaders Monday at the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade.

  • Coral Springs Fire Department is staying connected with Pulse Point, a free phone app that helps save more lives by alerting CPR-certified citizens within a quarter mile to help someone who may have a cardiac arrest. The certified citizen can arrive and administer aid to the person in need while first responders are on their way. NBC Miami
