Initiate #Disaster #preparedness!!!!
Yep, that’s the ever popular and infamous #bread #milk #eggs 🤣
Now what the heck am I supposed to make with this stuff?!?!?
We were requested to support an event at Ponciana School mainly for all the parents and families in Key West.
Our hope is that we conduct numerous events in communities to help answer questions about disaster assistance.
We have multilingual people who go out with our teams and help translate Spanish, Creole, Haitian, etc…and we have hardware and locations that meet the needs of the access and functional needs population at all of our Disaster Recovery Centers.
Sometimes, people are confused and are not sure if you should apply. Here’s a tip: Apply.

Presenting today at the 63rd Annual Wayne County Fire School (Ohio).
And yes, I get to crack the awesome social media jokes on THE Ohio State University campus.
Lots of Firefighters and Paramedics from all over.
Many familiar faces in the audience too!
Event organizers estimate over 100 attendees with numerous vendors on site including Metro LifeFlight, Cleveland Clinic, and MedFlight of Ohio. Helicopters!
Me? I’m just glad to participate.
Yep, that’s a suit.
Also, kudos to a fellow Firefighter WHFD FF Gary Klaus who was named this year’s Fire School Honorary Dean.
Intro music (GNR’s Paradise City) playing for the afternoon session. #excited.
PIO and Social Media skillz in 3…2…1…
Since so many kiddos are headed back to school (this week and next week) that it’s probably a good reminder for everyone to heed to local school buses in neighborhoods.
We must all do our part in keeping safety at the forefront of our daily activities.
Abide by all rules and be mindful of kids.
Please stop when a school bus is flashing red lights.
As you can see, kids will dart across the roadway without looking.
I don’t care if you are in your small car, minivan, truck, ambulance or fire truck – kids don’t understand traffic laws.
For the sake of kids’ safety – please abide by the rules of the road around school buses.
This past weekend, I was invited to swing by the Illinois Institute of Technology Graduate School in downtown Chicago.
Spirited discussion included bioterrorism, social media data/intelligence, explosives, nuc/rad release, mass panic/evacuation, and of course drone operations for large events.
Participants included many members of Chicago Police’s upper administration and leadership from Chicago Police specialty teams.
They asked Dr. Fagel if I was a Special Agent kinda guy. Clearly, my Aloha shirt on a Saturday really messed things up.
Overall, it was a great day to be in downtown Chicago.
Looking forward to sharing some SME knowledge with the graduate students this fall.
