49 people were killed in the Pulse Nightclub shooting in 2016. But an investigation from Health News Florida's Abe Aboraya and Pro Publica finds some people may have survived if paramedics had been allowed inside the club sooner.

This week on Florida Matters we hear that story and talk about how response efforts have changed since the massacre.

In this preview host Robin Sussingham talks with John Montes, an expert with the National Fire Protection Association. The group released new standards this year for responding to active shootings.
