Awww! A little USVI love came in the mail today.
Mahalos to everyone in the United States Virgin Islands!
People usually prolong the updates on their phone but…
NEW EMOJIS ARE HERE!!!! NEW EMOJIS ARE HERE!!!!
I should probably update my iOS now huh.
Guess which one is my new favorite emoji now?
Well hello Fall and hello November! No other deployment orders yet so phew! Back to steady state operations!
First week, I will be in heavy planning for the 2018 calendar and pop another one of my most favorite social media course!
Second week, it’s all about Columbus for FEMA/OEMA Basic Emergency Management Basic Academy at the Ohio Emergency Management Agency. Love to hang at the Mothership!
Third week, we will be doing some light logistical work and of course giving thanks for our friends and families.
The last week in November will be another solid ICS-300 class.
It’s almost time to close out the 2017 books as we are midway into 4Q!
Quick reminder on this 2017 Halloween….
Stay warm…and don’t let your kids chew on these glow sticks!
Trust me, this stuff doesn’t taste good.
I was asked if Pirate Radio was real….yeppers!
Pirate Radio based in the Florida Keys-Key West has a strong voice that not only hits audiences throughout the keys, but also into southern Florida too. They stream their shows so that any Pirate can listen in…even when yer a landlubber!
I was a regularly contributor to their morning shows with daily Hurricane Irma disaster updates. We also brought other public safety agencies in with us to showcase the unified efforts of countless government agencies involved and how we are all working together in the response/recovery effort.
Additionally, I was invited to be a regular guest on their Friday morning show to talk about the DHS/FEMA response and recovery efforts for the Florida Keys. Not only talking about the Florida Keys, but also the millions of $$ in financial support approved for the State of Florida.
Remember, AM/FM radio stations are a critical source of information in a disaster. After a disaster, cell service might be down, sat tv might be out, and it is highly likely that your neighborhood may not have power. Post-disaster, plan on AM/FM radio being a solid source of information.
Many mahalos to both gracious Pirate Radio hosts – Jack and Kim!
