Jordan Meserole '05 gave us a description:
Kristen Ross (a comm '05 graduate) and myself recently had the opportunity to ride along with Texas Task Force - 1, a team of emergency personnel from around the state that responds to disaster situations. We were embedded with them, which means we were there with them at 5 a.m. on the Tuesday before Hurricane Dolly hit, and never left their side until 3 p.m. that next Sunday. It was definitely different to experience as a journalist, because not only did we get to truly see how the story develops, but we were getting information as it happened (in other words, no waiting for a press release or hounding a public relations director).
Meserole says he's always available to any Aggie students who have questions (including questions about internships -- he interned at WFAA in Dallas, Fox Sports Southwest and WPLG in Miami). Reach him at meserole at kbtx dot com.
