"We asked: 'Do you believe your home would be destroyed or damaged from a Category 4 storm with winds of 150 miles per hour?' And, we asked: 'Would your home be damaged or destroyed by a Category 4 storm surge?'" says Brandon Bolinski, regional hurricane program manager for FEMA. "Time and time again, they responded, 'My home is vulnerable in Category 4 winds, but not storm surge.' "

In other words, people who had just endured a hurricane - even one that took lives - could process only how they would handle a storm just like it. "In the behavioral analysis, people said, 'I went through Hurricane Charley. Next time, if I just put shutters up, I'll be just fine'," Bolinski says.
Know your home," says Bolinski, of FEMA.

"The idea is to have rapid communication to folks in the field," said Brandon Bolinski, hurricane program specialist at the FEMA Region Four office in Atlanta.

"We help field questions about the hurricane, the emergency preparedness.Part of out role is just being there and getting the information out."
The team is called to the hurricane center in Miami usually within three to five days of a hurricane landing in the United States, Bolinski said.
Part of the training will be learning hurricane tracking and forecasting models, getting a feel for operations at the hurricane center and learning what roles the hurricane liaison team plays in the event of a hurricane, Bolinski said.
