Date & Times
Jun 25, 2020 from 8 AM - 5 PM
Description

AWR 209 Working with the Media: A Course for Emergency Responders is designed to provide emergency responders with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to interact with the media and perform public information functions in preparation for and during incidents. Many agencies from small and rural communities do not have a full- or part-time public information officer (PIO) on staff and responders often assume this responsibility without formal training and practice. The intent of this course is to prepare responders for interacting with the media when required, whether it be roadside at the scene of an incident or for conveying directions to the public in a crisis situation. Recommended prerequisites: IS100 and IS700 (any version)

Course Objectives
•Manage camera crews that show up unannounced at an incident scene.
•Know how to handle and control high-pressure TV interviews.
•Know where to look and what to say during the interview.
•Develop standard operating guidelines for responding to reporter calls.
•Use the Internet and social media for educating the public on hazards.
