Unidirectional mics and keeping it up! #PIO P26

Hello AlohaFriday!

Mic check! Sibilance. Sibilance. Check. Check.

As part of the ongoing P26 push…I thought this quick video about field mics might help out a few public safety colleagues.

Mainly designed for PIOs, PAOs, and External Affairs Officers….I think anyone could utilize these easy tips.

Operational proficiency is easy when you are in the classroom and it doesn’t hurt. Remember, it all goes to poop once it hits the fan.

As a hard core pro, continue to train in adverse conditions.

Be safe peeps.

Sharing preparedness tips with PIOs across the country #NatlPrep #PrepareAthon

I frequently present to Public Information Officers / Public Affairs Officers (PIOs & PAOs) across the country and talk extensively about preparedness.

For those that were wondering about the class attire, many of my classes get scheduled on a Friday aka #AlohaFriday

Proud to say that so many of them love the job and enjoy sharing ways to increase safety in all communities with FEMA’s Ready.Gov Program.

Your local Fire, EMS, Law Enforcement, and Emergency Management agencies are a great starting point for preparedness activities. Then all state safety agencies and Federal partners cooperate top down with many key organizations across the country.

That’s right. Local works with state works with regional works with national.

 

Happy #AlohaFriday peeps!

Some helpful social media terminology #SMEM

I’m often asked about terminology found on social media. Here are the 12 most commonly asked terms (as of 11-06-15):

1. Squad

Definition: Your crew, your team, your trusted agents aka your BFF (Best Friends Forever)

SM example: Heading to the White House w/ my squad. #SquadGoals

2. Ghosting

Definition: Ending a relationship by completely ignoring the other person on all social media platforms.

SM example: Dayum! Chastity ghosting Frank because he cheated.

3. Bye, Felicia

Definition: A term used to be dismissive of someone first popularized by the hit movie Friday (1995). Thanks for the team from MT on this info.

SM example: Hold up, you said you were going but now you are bailing? Not cool. Bye, Felicia.

(Note: There is some discussion on the possibility of this statement being perceived as degrading females)

4. On fleek

Definition: On point, looking good

6. BAE

SM example: “he was supposed to be bae a long time ago but I got friendzoned so now we’re bffs but you know, that’s better than nothing so.” -(@sosatooturnt_ on 12-22-14 at 0405)

7. FOMO

8. Turnt

9. #FF or #FridayFollow

Definition: Primarily on Twitter, this trendy hashtag is used on Fridays to recommend to others to follow.

SM example: #FF #FridayFollow @ReadyGov @PrepareAthon @FEMA @DHSGov @DisasterCTR @TEEX_NERRTC @CDPFEMA @CTOSRadNucTrng @NCBRT @SERTC_training

10. “Swipe-right or swipe-left”

Definition: An action used on the social media app Tinder for social acquaintances. The in app action of swiping on the picture to the left denotes you do not want to have interactions with the person (aka NOPE) and the action of swiping on the picture to the right denotes you have interest in the person featured (aka LIKE).

SM example: Brandy is so fake and under qualified, definitely swipe-left.

11. Troll

Definition: A person who only engages online discussion to create controversy.

SM example: Donald is not helping this convo at all. He’s just being a troll.

12. Doe

Definition: An abbreviation of the word though.

SM example: SFFD Truck-1! Dat tiller doe

A few other acronyms that still pop up:

  • ICYMI: In case you missed it
  • TBT: Throwback Thursdays
  • MCM: Man Crush Mondays
  • NBD: No big deal
  • WCW: Woman Crush Wednesdays
  • NSFW: Not safe for work
  • AFAIK: As far as I know
  • FBO: Facebook official
  • IRL: In real life
  • YOLO: You only live once
  • SMH: Shaking my head
  • LMK: Let me know

Like many social media apps, these terms will likely expire and new ones will come up.

For now, I hope this helps discern some social media terminology.
