Disaster preparedness will be the focus of next Pinellas eSeries

Join eSeries: Prepare to Survive as host Tom Iovino will discuss the topic "Preparing Florida for Disasters" on August 3. It will be a live 15-minute internet chat with a noted expert on hurricane preparedness, with citizen participation via the blog.

A live blog feature will open at www.pinellascounty.org/eseries before the presentation begins at 7 p.m. Those interested in submitting a question for consideration can log in and enter them into the blog window.

Questions meeting the terms of participation will be posted. Since the show is only 15 minutes long, not all questions may be answered on air. Those questions will be answered and posted online after the event.

Prepare to Survive can also be seen on PCC-TV (Bright House Channel 622, Knology Channel 18 or Verizon Channel 44). The dates for our upcoming Prepare to Survive eSeries presentations are Aug. 3, Oct. 5, Nov. 2 and Dec. 7. Look for eTownHall: Surviving the Storm 2011 on Wednesday, Sept. 7.

The video of the premiere eSeries: Prepare to Survive is available on the Pinellas County website and  the PCC-TV YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/pcctv1.

The eSeries is part of an initiative by Pinellas County to reach a wider audience through the use of emerging technologies with a focus on hurricane preparedness. The county is also using email subscriber lists, emergency text notifications, social media and the new Live Chat featured on www.pinellascounty.org. These efforts join conventional outreach initiatives.
