More wildfire simulations with simulated press conferences. Except this time, it didn’t have to deal with the fictitious Central City! Whew.
However, the Tuolome River fire was a dangerous one.
Our instructors planned a tough press conference for us.
But no worries, we were ready with talking points, assigned tasks, and of course paired our responses for our targeted audiences.
Getting the right information…
To the right people….
At the right time…..
So they can make good decisions.
While seemingly easy, planning and coordinating a press conference from the all-hazards side is much more complex than meets the eye…esp when it has to deal with response variables that aren’t normally a factor in the urban interface.
Buckle up buttercup, this one might be a bit more rough.
