Cedar Key working to improve emergency management systems
Today marks the one year anniversary of the Gulf Oil Spill. The spill lasted for 85 days and killed 11 men who were aboard the Deepwater Horizon oil rig. 206 gallons spewed from the Gulf well. A year later, Cedar Key is working to improve its emergency management to deal with a worst case scenario. Cedar Key Mayor Pat O’Neal says when the Gulf oil spill began the city realized it was unprepared. He says oil never actually hit their shores, but the local economy has yet to fully recover.
