PIO & Public Educator Engagement
At our Carroll County Volunteer Emergency Services Association PIO Committee meeting Monday evening, April 30, 2018, Westminster Fire Department PIO Bob Cumberland called to our attention some information resources that may be found on the ResponderSafety.com website:
PIO & Public Educator Engagement - http://www.respondersafety.com/About-Us/Key-Initiatives/PIO-Public-Educator-Engagement.aspx
“Every day across America, distracted and uninformed drivers pose a major threat to the safety and wellbeing of first responders who risk their own lives on roads and highways to assist those involved in traffic incidents. Please join us to reach the traveling public with roadway incident response messages that will help keep them and your personnel safe.
“On this page, we have compiled the resources of most value to Public Information Officers (PIOs) who communicate with media outlets, as well as to fire and life safety educators and others within your department who communicate with the public. We encourage you to explore the full ResponderSafety.com web site.”
The page has a wealth of information on it that is informative, insightful, thoughtful, and presented well.
Be safe out there.
