Media and folks on the left have been spreading false claims about the response to the Surfside building collapse by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

Perhaps the worst was from the Washington Post’s Hannah Dreier, who spread a completely false story, as I previously reported.

There’s a saying in emergency management: The first 24 hours are the only 24 hours.

FEMA was ready to deploy to the condo collapse almost immediately, and included the crisis in its daily briefing, but didn’t get permission from Gov. DeSantis to get on the ground for a full day. pic.twitter.com/rVmCN47sQJ

Now, this was not true. DeSantis can’t declare a state emergency until the local mayor declares an emergency. He did so one hour after the mayor did on the same day the collapse happened. It’s probably harder to get much faster than that. No resources were denied to the folks on site. Miami-Dade County Mayor Danielle Levine Cava said “the state of Florida has been here in force” and that “we have not lacked for any support.” Mayor Charlie Burkett of Surfside said “the state of Florida has been here in force” and that “we have not lacked for any support.”

The DC media is suggesting @GovRonDeSantis failed to provide resources to Surfside.

The mayor of Miami-Dade, a Democrat, was asked about this on Meet The Press and said it’s not true:

“Not only has the state of Florida been here in force (…) we’ve not lacked for any support.” https://t.co/fHCEXqZH5t pic.twitter.com/LDYmgkSQ86

Jared Moskowitz, a Democrat politician who recently served as Florida’s Director of Emergency Management also blasted the claim by Dreier.

FEMA’s mantra is “locally executed, state managed, and federal supported.” As the former director in FL who voted for Biden this tweet below is 100% Malarkey. FEMA would have deployed the federally funded USAR teams, which are located in @MiamiDadeCounty. They were already there. https://t.co/Czj0GYY9yV
