Just glad to be a part of the FEMA disaster response to help my fellow Americans.
For those that were affected by Hurricane Irma in the Florida Keys, this video will concrete the need to register for FEMA disaster assistance.

Have to use SnapChat for preparedness but can’t get out of the office to do it?
Me too. Maybe this snap could help you out.
That’s the best I can do.
