Got a chance to do a live spot with News13 out of Orlando in Cudjoe Key, Florida.
Inside, it’s a whole different view.
As you know, Cat-4 Hurricane Irma made eye wall landfall here with incredible high winds and storm surge leaving heavy devastation throughout this neighborhood.
Lots to see and do esp w/ their field producing and staff onsite. I counted at least 7 cameras for their 6p live shot.
They even had a jib camera.
People will stare including our staff and state director.
Lots of steadycam shots leading into the first interview with former State of Florida Emergency Management Director Bryan Koon.
Next live segment was with our Division Supervisor (DIV/SUP) who happens to be an Federal Coordinating Officer (FCO) member.
Solid questions on response efforts and good inquiries for ongoing operations for recovery phase.
Great interactions and questions from the anchors.
Lots to discuss in response as well as recovery.
As you know, the recovery phase is the hardest part of a disaster.
Glad to be partnering with news agencies who get the story right. The Anchors and producer was super nice…so of course I had to take a selfie w/ them. Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeze!
Making sure we represent FEMA – particularly Branch V Division Alpha.
