WEST PALM BEACH, FL–
Today, at the Annual Governor’s Hurricane Conference in West Palm Beach, FL, Sara Perkins, Small Business & Community Involvement Manager, participated on an esteemed panel regarding the importance of community education and outreach as it relates to storm preparedness and innovative communication strategies during a storm response mission. The theme for this 33rd edition of the Governor’s Hurricane Conference was “Road to Readiness” which focused on the ability to communicate utilizing non-traditional means for situational awareness, and the need to continue training and educating Florida’s emergency management community. The panel included representatives from the Broward County Emergency Management Division, FIU’s International Hurricane Research Center, NOAA National Weather Service, and StormZone, a non-profit organization focused on youth education on storm preparedness.
