Southern Ohio PIOs class 

Lots to discuss these past few days in southern Ohio with PIOs from across the state here to learn more hands on for field PIOs.

Initial review on external affairs as well StratComms (Strategic Communications) discussion. Lots of facts as well as comparisons from past to present.

Thanks Erik! Then lots of case studies to review including reviewing video interviews with famous…

…and now infamous people.

Lots to learn!

Also shared some heartwarming success stories from our area.

Hands on training in a safe classroom environment allows PIOs to explore various techniques and use equipment that usually only found with broadcast news stations.

Also gave a chance to PIOs to craft, strategize, and rollout messaging to their peeps in a simulated emergency.

Walking interviews isn’t easy to do…esp during a simulated flooding. 

Solid creative messaging including a song too! (<–inspired by the Mecklenburg County TADD jingle).

Great work to all participants who attended.
Special thanks to Angela from the Washington County Health Department for hosting this collaborative workshop for everyone.

Great to have trusted fellow PIOs and friends in southern Ohio.
