posted Jul 12, 2013 - 1:15:01pm
Continuing its long-held designation as Volusia County’s official public television station for emergency information, WDSC-TV 15 welcomed officials on July 10 for the annual check presentation of $10,000 to Daytona State College President Carol W. Eaton.
This year, Jason P. Davis, Volusia County Council chair, presented the check to Dr. Eaton, joined by James A. Judge II, Volusia County Emergency Management director.
Daytona State’s WDSC-TV has served the county in this capacity for more than 10 years. Each year the county presents the station with a check for this service, noting the importance of the station’s emergency broadcast delivery and community reach.
A prime example of WDSC-TV’s community service takes the form of the annual Emergency Preparedness show with guest host WESH-TV reporter Claire Metz. This year’s show airs Wednesday, July 17, from 8 to 9:30 p.m., followed by Hurricane Survival Tips for the Homeowner. Daytona State journalism and broadcast students work in the studio and help produce this show, among many others shown on WDSC.
The 90-minute, live call-in show guides viewers on how to prepare for emergency situations such as severe weather, natural and other disasters, as well as developing a survival plan. Emergency preparedness experts will be in the studio to answer questions. Viewers are encouraged to call the hotline number: 1-800-901-9238.
Part of Daytona State College, WDSC-TV 15 is a non-commercial, educational television station that reaches 3 million viewers and 1.5 million households throughout Volusia, Flagler, Orange, Seminole, Lake, Marion, Brevard and Osceola counties.
