Florida Division of Emergency Management will be the highlighted organization during Radio Disney’s Holiday Concert in Celebration, FL. The Division’s character, Professor Tinkermeister, will be on stage with weather experiments, trivia and games. The professor will also be in the Division’s booth to teach families about disaster preparedness. The concert begins at 6:00 pm on Saturday, December 11, 2010.

“We are very grateful for this partnership with Radio Disney,” said Division of Emergency Management Director, David Halstead. ”This event is an excellent opportunity for the Division to speak face to face with Floridians about the importance of severe weather preparedness.”

Florida students can win a visit by Professor Tinkermeister to their school by registering at the Division’s booth. Featured on, the Professor is a spokesperson who provides family-friendly all weather hazards information. Kids can use the website to help their families be prepared for Florida’s range of severe weather events. The winning school will be notified by phone.

Division representatives will be on hand throughout the evening to provide important disaster preparedness information in their on-site booth. Radio Disney is anticipating 15,000+ residents and visitors to be in attendance.
