Danielle also addressed the importance of Integrated Warning Teams (IWTs). These are groups of NWS reps, media, and EMs that meet for 2 workshops/year. Important for all to be on the same page re: messaging.

Glad to hear this is part of the conversation. Rappaport’s study of indirect fatalities shows that there are as many deaths before & after storms from causes related to power outages, accidents during recovery, & heart attacks. Need to do a better job messaging these hazards.

Dr. Beven noted that while there were 16 direct deaths attributed to Michael, there were other indirect deaths. From a health standpoint, I think we should educate more on post-storm safety (cardiovascular issues, tetanus, carbon monoxide, contaminated floodwaters, etc.
