Basic Details
Name AWR-209 Dealing with the Media: A Short Course for Rural Responders : ( AWR-209)
Description Dealing with the Media: A Short Course for Rural Responders is designed to provide rural first responders with the skills and knowledge to quickly adopt the role of public information officer (PIO) if/when needed and to communicate with the public through the media. Many rural first responder organizations do not have a full or part-time PIO on staff. Therefore, in the event that a first responder is thrust into the role of PIO, whether it be roadside at the scene of an emergency or detailing directions to the public in a crisis situation, it is important to understand how the media works and how best to work with the available media outlets. First responder organizations often appoint one or more of their colleagues to assume the role of talking with the media, or arranging and assisting with such contact, in both emergency and non-emergency situations.
PreRequisite -700.a
