Today's event included "Family Time" (a 'straight-to-the-point" method of finding solutions to challenges which may be faced by team members or various departments to ensure continuity of public safety across the board within BSO).  Members of the local press and media were included in today's Aviation Day and treated like family.  SKYFORCE Aviation Unit (a news-media aircraft proudly bearing the WSVN 7 insignia of Sunbeam Television Corporation), was on display and part of today's Aviation Day.  The ariel footage captured by SKYFORCE for local news (LIVE and re-broadcasts) is commonly seen during local newscasts on WSVN 7 (among other media outlets).  SKYFORCE is known to aid law enforcement (including fire-rescue) with needed and critical intelligence, in real-time, relaying communications to ground units, thus helping First Responders to effectively perform their duties as their "eyes in the sky"!
