Reporting live from the State of Maryland Emergency Management Agency and Homeland Security Symposium…
See, partnerships are key in the success of any agency’s mission.
Continue to explore working with your partners in public safety!
Awww! A little USVI love came in the mail today.
Mahalos to everyone in the United States Virgin Islands!
Another solid start to a fun ICS-400: Advanced Incident Command System for Command and General Staff course.
Looking forward to expanding on the concepts in ICS-300 and enhancing it with some of my most recent disaster deployments Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.
Reporting live from the classroom of fun…
Even if you give the TV news crews your title on camera for the chyron….they might get it wrong.
Well, at least they spelled my name right.
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!
