Working with Univision to get our message out in Spanish 

Great day working with Univision from Miami.


Sharing the message from our FEMA on registering on disasterassistance.gov is a great way to start the process on various programs. But sharing it statewide is great too!


Reaching audiences in various languages allows our information to proliferate into various communities throughout different communities affected by the Cat-4 hurricane.


Additionally sharing the recovery message with our partners like Small Business Administration (SBA) – showcases the skills of government agencies working together.

  • “We are working closely with our partner in public safety to ensure that everyone gets disaster assistance.”
  • “It’ll be a long road ahead, but millions of dollars have been approved for disaster assistance to Floridians for Hurricane Irma recovery.”
  • “This is what we train for, this is what we do.”

Glad we prepped and hit questions that could be used across various communities. #syndication

First time working with Univision – interviews in Spanish!

For the first time in my career, I got a chance to work with Univision for a FEMA interview on the disaster recovery process.


Great to have Patty down with our crews at the Big Pine Key Disaster Recovery Center.


Like any good PIO, before the news crews arrived, we briefly went over questions and talked about the important points of disaster response/recovery as well as possible questions that could be brought up.


The Univision crews also interviewed people who were there too.


And since we have several people who speak Spanish, I figured that it would be great to have them get some camera time too.


Well done Carmen!

And of course, since this was the first time I worked with Univision, I had to get a selfie.


Glad to be a small part in helping getting the word out to the Spanish speaking community.
