Emergency Management Media Strategies
Communications are critical to emergency management operations. An effective disaster communications strategy has to be in place. The mission of an effective disaster communications strategy is to provide accurate information that is timely. There is also the challenge of developing an effective emergency management media strategy that embraces new forms of media. These new forms of media have changed the way disaster information is shared with the public. For this assignment, review the media National Emergency Communications Plan. Consider a media strategy for your Final Project and how you might apply this strategy to different audiences. The assignment: (2–3 pages) Explain how emergency managers might alert the community to risks and hazards. Explain how the media strategy for the selected community incorporates different audiences (i.e., diverse stake-holders and socio-economic groups across the community). Explain how the media strategy meets the mission and assumptions of effective disaster communications.
