AWR-329: Leveraging Tools for Coordinated Community Disaster Communications

Event Type: Zoom


September 24, 2024    
4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The better a community communicates, the more prepared and equipped that community will be to respond to a hazard event. Bi-directional communication sharing of disaster information facilitates improved disaster response execution. Using the widest possible range of communication tools (e.g., omnichannel communication) helps ensure redundant communication capability, high information fidelity for decision-makers, and contributes to achieving response goals during and following a disaster occurrence. 

This four-hour awareness-level training course will provide community and volunteer groups, state and local government agencies, and other stakeholder groups, as well as concerned citizens, with relevant information and practical exercises that will improve their knowledge and skills to better serve the communication needs of their communities. The course is designed to help participants to better understand the importance of communicating with different groups at different times, and to evaluate the various tools available to affect communications.
