Hurricane and Traveler’s Quest Nominated -AGAIN- in Best App Ever Awards!
Once again Hurricane and Traveler’s Quest have been nominated in the Best App Ever Awards! As you know, this is a people’s choice award and we couldn’t have been nominated with out your help!
Now that the nominations have been finalized, it’s time to vote for the best in each category. Hurricane has been nominated in the Weather category, and Traveler’s Quest has been nominated in the Best Location-Based App, Best Travel App and Most Addictive Game category.
We are competing with some really tough games and weather apps, and we can’t do it without your help! Can we take home one of these categories? You hold the key to success!
Please take a moment to vote for not only our apps, but also for the other apps competing for each category. There are lots of great apps that deserve recognition for the hard work they’ve put into their apps, so make sure you share the love!
Good luck to all of the apps, and thank you for helping Hurricane and Traveler’s Quest be the success that it is – without you, the apps would not be what they are so THANK YOU!

Follow Friday and Emergency Managers
Being a part of the community that needs to get important information out to every day people is a huge responsibility. Trying to get that information out in the most direct way possible is always a large undertaking as well, but there are ways for us to take a moment to share important resources with one another.
When a crisis is happening @CraigatFEMA does a lot of retweeting of important information. What if the sources of that information were shared each Friday as a #FF tweet? It would take a few minutes, and would create a web of accounts for people to follow. If the accounts are descriptive enough, it will be very easy to decipher who belongs where… An example would be:
#FF Central FL #SMEM @NWSTampaBay @PinellasEM @NWSMelbourne @BrevardEOC @OrangeCountyEOC
By adding the surrounding emergency management accounts, and those accounts adding their surrounding accounts, it enables everyone to not only connect, but share the information you’re trying to get out.
I tried to start this today, but hope that if not today, then next Friday we can start this ball rolling and really get connected with our communities.
Please take a moment to share this information with other emergency managers that you know so that we can ensure that everyone knows how to get the official information for their areas.
