Hurricane_Michael_EVX_loopOur own meteorologist Becky DePodwin comes on to discuss crisis management and the importance of messaging. In the middle of the current COVID-19 response and crisis, messaging is an important part of any emergency manager’s tool kit.

Becky and the podcast team discuss leadership styles and why being proactive as a leader is more important than being reactive to an ongoing crisis. Sam cites past disasters like Hurricane Katrina and Jamie talks about how weather messaging has changed over the years to improve understanding among the public when it comes to storm dangers.

Also on the show are Dr. Joe Holley, along with co-hosts Sam Bradley, and Jamie Davis.
