Carry it all? It is called a Go Kit for a reason. #NatlPrep

It’s still National Preparedness month and it’s the start of week-3 focusing in on practicing and building out your plans.

GO kit sounds great, but if you have a hard time moving your go kit(s), then it’s likely a no kit. Make sure your go kits are light and lean.


Seriously bag lady, make sure you can carry it all!

Briefing w/ National IMAT for Southern Florida Operations

Change of plans this afternoon. 

About to start a briefing with National Incident Management Team (IMAT) for response to southern Florida. 

And yes, I am at home with T-cards on the wall and all C&GSFs briefing out.


Can you support the plan?!?

***********Update***********

Breaking news: I have been reassigned as the FEMA PIO to cover the Florida Keys.

More details to follow.

#PlanAhead to properly use social media during a disaster #NatlPrepĀ 

Since almost everyone uses social media…

Teach your family how to properly use social media BEFORE a disaster. It’s another way to keep in communications w/ your family before, during, and after a disaster. #NatlPrep


Even in a disaster, we should all learn a bit of social responsibility.

And yes, we should all use our social media powers for good.
