WE ARE IN A GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER AREA TODAY FROM 1300L -1900L BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL UTILIZING ANYTHING RELATED TO FIRE.
Today is RANT A LITTLE DAY:
Weather and news agencies state they want to keep us safe. If that’s the case, why do they put their reporters and meteorologists out into the storm and into danger? Do they not realize that we KNOW the wind is blowing and the rain is falling? Why ruin the broadcast equipment at the same time. Believe me, companies state its waterproof, not really. Will they continue this even if one of their folks gets killed on national television during a live broadcast from flying debris?
They state they want to protect us. They need to show a lot more common sense and responsibility in where they do their reporting. Protect your reporters and I guarantee you that people will see the dangers involved. What would folks think if I did live broadcasts outside during our severe weather? PREPAREDNESS =COMMON SENSE=YOU LIVE ANOTHER DAY
