SBA can help too! #Disaster #Hurricane #Irma #Maria

Disaster help provided by the SBA? Where did the SBA come from?

But they only help out small businesses right? Nope.

Here’s a quick video that answers the most commonly asked questions.

Proud to work with so many partners like the Small Business Administration from across the country in this disaster recovery operation.

Working with Univision to get our message out in Spanish 

Great day working with Univision from Miami.


Sharing the message from our FEMA on registering on disasterassistance.gov is a great way to start the process on various programs. But sharing it statewide is great too!


Reaching audiences in various languages allows our information to proliferate into various communities throughout different communities affected by the Cat-4 hurricane.


Additionally sharing the recovery message with our partners like Small Business Administration (SBA) – showcases the skills of government agencies working together.

  • “We are working closely with our partner in public safety to ensure that everyone gets disaster assistance.”
  • “It’ll be a long road ahead, but millions of dollars have been approved for disaster assistance to Floridians for Hurricane Irma recovery.”
  • “This is what we train for, this is what we do.”

Glad we prepped and hit questions that could be used across various communities. #syndication

Another Governor and FCO visit with PIO media coordination

Another Florida Governor visit with our senior administration and Federal Coordinating Officer (FCO).


Tight quarters so I had to set the cameras far back.


Little known fact, positioning and seats AT the table is important. A PIOs job is to get the right optic for media.


I even found a reporter shooting stills in between the arms of attendees.


Cramped space makes it tight and a little schwetty!


After the actual meeting was over, we had several post meeting interviews including 10News and Telemundo. Great to see so many news outlets covering the Governor’s message…


…and our message from FEMA.


Solid day on Hurricane Irma disaster response and recovery for Florida.

#PIO is OK!

Have you seen @TSA Mr August #SafetySur

Have you seen Mr. August?

UnclePeteAugust-2015

Here’s my Uncle Pete doing some #SafetySur stuff for the official Transportation Security Administration (TSA) 2015 pocket calendar. Celebrity status for sure! So if you’ve been through the Honolulu International Airport, you’ve probably seen my Uncle (who has since been promoted to supervisory/management at TSA HNL).

If you were wondering, my Father and Uncle are proud Veterans who served their country. Yep, safety runs in my family’s blood…Safety runs in my blood. #SafetySur

Our family has always served this great country and I am extremely proud of all my family’s accomplishments and their continued vigilance on safety.
