Training – Managing Public Information for All Hazards Incidents
The Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) in partnership with Native Public Media (NPM) is hosting a five-day training on Managing Public Information for All Hazards Incident and Emergency Operations Plans for Rural Jurisdictions. The training, including participant travel days, is scheduled for July 9 - 15, 2017 at the Center for Domestic Preparedness in Anniston, Alabama.
Managing Public Information for All-Hazards Incidents (MPI) training will provide participants with the practical knowledge of the role of the Public Information Officer, the National Incident Management System, emergency communications methods, risk communication, and interpersonal skills. Additionally, participants will obtain knowledge and skills to develop an emergency operations plan (EOP) for their local jurisdiction or region. Participants are provided with knowledge on the planning process, the different types of emergency operations plan formats, and the components of each. Participants engage in scenarios that are designed to reinforce the lessons learned and to enable them to determine the best format for their particular jurisdiction and to organize the various planning components into an EOP.
