ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings has been appointed to the Federal Emergency Management Agency National Advisory Council.

Demings appointment was announced this week by FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate. He is one of 12 new members, and is filling a vacancy in the Elected Local Government Officials position.
