BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The past several days have shown very positive signs for Agent Casey Smith and Saturday has been an amazing day in his recovery.

Earlier today, Casey’s medical team removed his respirator and his family was able to actually have limited conversation with him for the first time since he was shot in the line of duty.

Casey is getting stronger every day and today’s events were an incredible sign of his recovery abilities.

While we are very excited about today’s progress, we also know that there is still a long road ahead of us and ask that you continue to keep Casey and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Michele and the family want everyone to know how thankful they are for the support that has been shown by the members of our agency and the community.

The support for Casey has been amazing and has truly shown how important Casey is to everyone. Additionally, the family is so thankful for the many fundraising efforts that are taking place to help Casey.
