Pulse Resources and FAQs
Orlando is mourning the loss of 49 lives in what is now the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. Orlando will never forget what happened at Pulse Nightclub. The nation and the world will not forget.
WMFE stands with you, Orlando. We are grieving with you. We are marveling at the incredible strength and unity you are showing to the world in the face of this atrocity.
As we seek to understand what happened and heal as a community, you will have many questions about how you can get help and give it. Here’s some information that we hope can help you… #OrlandoUnited
Where can I go for emotional support or other resources? The 2-1-1 Information and Assistance Crisis Helpline is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Where can I find the list of victims? The City of Orlando has created a site to recognize the victims. All families have been contacted, so all 49 names are listed.
How else can I help? On June 21, Mayor Buddy Dyer announced that the road closures surrounding Pulse were being lifted. All of the businesses nearby had been closed during the investigation, so we urge residents to support these businesses as we all rebuild together. For more information, please see Mayor Dyer’s statement.
How can I share my story? To aid in the healing of our community, 90.7 WMFE has created Post Your Pulse, a place where you can share your stories, your photos, your feelings, and connect with others to heal. Let’s get to know these victims, with help from those who knew them. Let’s share stories of solidarity and kindness. Let’s thank our first responders and good Samaritans.
