Producing effective, timely messaging before, during and after an emergency can save lives. It is increasingly difficult to reach the entire population due to the differences in consumable media, so emergency communication is now less of an exact science and more of a moving target.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Crisis and Emergency Risk Communication (CERC) program helps emergency managers navigate this issue through education, resources, and in-person and online training. CERC defines core emergency and risk communications principles and how they apply to different phases of a crisis.
An upcoming webinar, “Introduction to CERC,” is scheduled for May 1, 2018, from 2-3 p.m. Eastern. It will help emergency responders and health communication professionals learn more about CERC principles so that they craft more effective emergency communications strategies.
Those interested can join the webinar without needing to register. There are three phone numbers available for callers in the United States: +1 646 876 9923 or +1 669 900 6833 or +1 408 638 0968. International numbers are also available. The webinar ID is 692 982 968.
