As we get closer to hurricane season, the phones at REBUILD Northwest Florida are starting to get busier. For almost a decade the group has been helping people in our area get their homes ready to survive a hurricane. WUWF's Bob Barrett sat down with Garrett Walton, the CEO of REBUILD NWF to talk about the group's mission and how they got started.
Escambia County Emergency Director John Dosh is a busy man these days, with the 2014 hurricane season just around the corner.
While an assistant was attending last week’s national hurricane conference in Orlando, Dosh was in St. Augustine for a meeting on funding local homeland security programs in fiscal year 2015. He says it’s not known yet just how much money will come to Florida and to Escambia County, other than to say that the latter is expected to be in six figures.
