The following statement was  issued by Mayor Jeff Fusco on Wednesday November 11, 2015

On behalf of the City and its residents, I want to publicly thank those safety officials who responded to yesterday’s tragic plane crash in Ellet. We particularly want to recognize the members of the Akron Fire Department, the Akron Police Department and the Ohio State Highway Patrol who arrived on the scene so quickly and worked so diligently to contain what might have been an even greater tragedy.

We extend our deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims of this crash and ask the community to join us in remembering them in our thoughts and prayers. We also want to acknowledge the trauma and loss experienced by our local residents whose homes were affected and those who witnessed this terrible event. We urge everyone who observed the crash or was otherwise affected to take advantage of the support and counseling services being offered by the American Red Cross.

We are standing by to assist the National Transportation Safety Board and other authorities as they begin their investigation and will provide our full support to the community of Ellet during the coming days as it strives to recover from this heartbreaking event.
