Show Notes

*UPDATE* After speaking with the law firm identified in this podcast, they apologized for the article and have since removed it from their website.

In this episode, AFSO21 Radio, The Weekend Wrap-up host Kevin Ferrara thanks his audience members for their support with recognizing his cousin Stephen Ferrara's recent passing.

As the episode continues, Kevin speaks about Hurricane IDA and how those along the Gulf Coast need to be prepared for what is being reported as a catastrophic storm.

Kevin talks about the political impact of Afghan refugees coming to America might have on emergency responders at military installations as well as in municipalities where the refugees are being temporarily housed and eventually relocated.

Kevin then talks about Emergency Response Capabilities and asks audience members if responding with just one person on an apparatus is effective.

As the episode wraps up, Kevin speaks about how he and other firefighters he's supporting were recently named by a law firm's blog without their knowledge and how a reporter they have been working with was shocked at how the law firm essentially stole her work.
