Kristy Yager is the Public Information Officer for Oklahoma City. She’s used to creating game plans for emergencies. So when May 20 came, she made her way to a bunker with emergency managers, police and a handful of city officials. She’d prepared for the crisis as best she could, but found herself overwhelmed trying to handle the influx of media requests.
“The minute that tornado hit the ground, I started getting national phone calls from everyone, from Fox, from CNN, from ABC, NBC, CBS,” Yager said. “I was having a very hard time managing the calls.”
