Starting off another FEMA G0290: Basic PIO course with our public safety pros from across the state!
I am fortunate to grab a few other PIOs for class today – suit up!
Aside from sharing concepts and theory, we also focused on interview skills…
…you know we did the oncamera interviews.
No bones about it, our mantra is to provide the best real-world training out there.
Lots of discussion on staging as well as single role PIOs and what they can do to get the ball rolling.
We also integrated a few activities and exercises into the mix too.
Don’t worry, we took some time to discuss communications strategies. We shared the 8-step communications model and introduced StratComms!
Planning ahead is always a good thing – esp for PIOs. Preparedness is essential in being a good PIO.
Successful first day with everyone. Looking forward to a solid day-2!
