Free Department of Homeland Security-certified course on Media Awareness and Response

The Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC) is making it easier for emergency responders in the Northampton, Pennsylvania area to step into that role by delivering a FREE U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS)-certified media awareness course that provides valuable insight into helping to understand how the media works and how best to work with available media outlets. This six-hour instructor-led course, AWR 209 - Dealing with the Media: A Short Course for Rural First Responders, will be offered from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on May 1st, 2015 at the Northampton Fire Department, 1 Lerchenmiller Drive, Northampton, Pennsylvania, giving emergency responders the skills and knowledge they need to quickly adopt the role of a public information officer if and when needed and to communicate with the public through the news media.

Participants will learn both in a classroom-lecture setting and through group activities. Many rural first responder organizations do not have a full- or part-time public information officer on staff, therefore, making this training a valuable asset in learning more about building media relationships and effective communication skills in disseminating information to the news media.

Registration is required for this course - Registration deadline is April 17th at noon
