Pipe busted? Who you gonna call?

Think about this: If you really need accurate, timely information about a major news event in Sitka, where do you turn? On Friday, September 13, 2013 — or “Brown Friday,” to those lucky enough to have any water pressure! — Sitka’s water main broke in two places under Sawmill Creek Road, drying out much of the town. In addition to our immediate on-air information, KCAW also posted updates to our website and Facebook page. Over the course of the afternoon, public works director Michael Harmon began posting updates directly to our Facebook page. Even the Public Works Department phone greeting referred callers to KCAW’s Facebook page. That day, KCAW’s posts were viewed over 7,000 times. How do YOU make a difference when disaster calls?
