Hosting TV crews from everywhere at our DRC

It’s great to share the stories of survivors and employees here at FL / FEMA Disaster Recovery Center in Marathon.

Glad to host WOODTV news crews from Michigan today.


Interview in 3…2…1…

Trust your staff to tell your agency’s story

Trust your staff and let them tell your agency’s story. Through their eyes, voice, and heart – the world will truly see the mission and goal.

Juan is a perfect example: Soon to be Father, an excellent DRC Manager, and most importantly, his family is from Puerto Rico. A testament to professionalism, dedication, caring, and compassion to countless survivors of Hurricane Irma here in the Florida Keys.

Me? I’m just proud to be on his team.

First time working with Univision – interviews in Spanish!

For the first time in my career, I got a chance to work with Univision for a FEMA interview on the disaster recovery process.


Great to have Patty down with our crews at the Big Pine Key Disaster Recovery Center.


Like any good PIO, before the news crews arrived, we briefly went over questions and talked about the important points of disaster response/recovery as well as possible questions that could be brought up.


The Univision crews also interviewed people who were there too.


And since we have several people who speak Spanish, I figured that it would be great to have them get some camera time too.


Well done Carmen!

And of course, since this was the first time I worked with Univision, I had to get a selfie.


Glad to be a small part in helping getting the word out to the Spanish speaking community.
