The FEMA #PIO on #PirateRadio! Is that real? #FBF

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!

Your best tweets will show first? Hellz no! #firehose

Seems like Twitter is trying to prioritize the most important tweets to you.

Awwwwwwwwww, hellz no!

Well, at least they *think* they can predict what you want to read from your follower base.

Don’t be fooled. You can toggle this option off via your Twitter settings. And I suggest you do.

Because if you are like me, you like LOVE drinking from the fire hose.

So do the right thing and toggle your “best Tweets first” to the off position.

Never settle for a supposed predicted computed algorithm to calculate what it thinks I want to read. I can make that decision on my own.
