Day-1 of the FEMA Basic PIO course here in Indianapolis!
Glad to be teaching with FEMA Master PIO Erica Creech…
…and WTFD Capt Mike Pruitt…
…and oh a quick surprise….FEMA Master PIO Rita Reith!
That’s right, for those of you keeping score, this is the first time 3 FEMA Master PIOs have taught the Basic PIO Course. Whoop whooop!
Don’t worry, we did some on camera interviews as well as some fun dialog with out class that hail from Indiana and Kentucky!
We talked about press conferences and the importance and the need for onscene communications not only with the news media, but also the general public. Like the breaking news coming out of Mercy Hospital in Chicago.
Also sharing some stories of breaking news in Cleveland.
Great dynamic and solid discussion from everyone who attended today’s first day of FEMA Basic PIO!
