On 9-11, Officer Adam Ray D141 represented the Davenport Police Department as a member of the Honor Guard presentation at the Honoring Our 9-11 Heroes event hosted by the Winter Haven Police Department.

On this 17th Anniversary of the September 11 Tragedy let us remember, “If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.” —Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl, in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, in 2002. Take a moment out of your busy schedule today to remember those who lost their lives and for those who gave their lives on this tragic day 17 years ago.

Don’t drive drowsy. Fatigue slows down your thought process and reaction time, affects your judgment and vision, and impairs your senses and abilities. • Avoid driving at times when you would normally be asleep and check your medication labels - do not drive after taking medication that cause drowsiness. • If you have difficulty focusing, frequent blinking or heavy eyelids, it’s time to pull over in a safe place to rest. You snooze, you lose. • On long trips, take a break every 100 miles or two hours. Use the buddy system to change drivers and grab some coffee! • Commercial drivers - don’t forget to log your hours of service and take your breaks! Drowsy driving can be deadly. #DrowsyDrivingFL #ArriveAliveFL
