Crisis Communications

Prior to responding to this forum read Chapter 5 of your course textbook and read Chapter 3 and Appendix C in the Comprehensive Preparedness Guide 101: Developing and Maintaining Emergency Operations Plans (Links to an external site.). Communications are critical to the success of all emergency responses. In the emergency operations plan, communications are addressed in both the basic plan and in a special annex. The emergency operations center is a communications hub designed to provide information to and from decision makers on scene and in support roles.
In this discussion, you will focus on the official channels of communication from the public to the response agencies and from on-scene first responders to decision makers.
