In Irma’s Path: Top Takeaways from a Fort Myers ND

WINK TV’s veteran news director Tom Doerr and his team planned many days out to cover all the anticipated eventualities. Top of mind in all of their planning was safety and the lives of his staff. Here are Tom’s top takeaways:

SAFETY:

- Stress safety first at all times. Look out for each other!

- Make sure field crews have a safe place to shield themselves at the height of the hurricane.

- Have an emergency fall-back location if primary fails.

- Take care of all your equipment by protecting it from the elements. That includes transportation. The best place for news cars is concrete parking structures at least one story high. Park microwave and sat trucks in locations that block the wind. Large buildings are best.
