WPOZ Launches 'Wake-A-Friend' Campaign

Contemporary Christian WPOZ (Z88.3)/ORLANDO has created a campaign called "WAKE-A-FRIEND" after tornadoes hit CENTRAL FLORIDA last THURSDAY (2/2) at 3a ET, when most people were asleep.
Without tornado sirens to alert people in CENTRAL FLORIDA, OM/PD DEAN O'NEAL asked listeners to call family and friends in the storm's path to wake them. With "WAKE-A-FRIEND," WPOZ wants to make sure that listeners are ready to make calls at a moment's notice during future severe weather outbreaks.
"If Z88.3 listeners are safe from any immediate danger, we will be asking them to call anyone they know that might be in the path of a severe storm and wake them up," said O'NEAL. "By waking a friend, they may be saving a life."
WPOZ is providing a form on its website at www.Zradio.org for listeners to create a phone list of friends and family who live in CENTRAL FLORIDA's eight-county region to post in their homes.
