Public Information Officer

In this course, the student focuses on the unique and essential communication requirements in times of emergency and/or disaster response. Whether a formal role, or one incorporated into other duties, all organizations need to identify and prepare a spokesperson to deal with the many communications issues during crisis. Students build skills in the areas of oral and written communication, understanding the media and building value in relationships with media, social media management and the basic tools and techniques for effective communications both internally and externally to promote understanding and "calm" in the face of extreme situations. An overall organizational communication plan for responding to outside inquiries is also reviewed.
