The Risk Communicator Newsletter
Providing information and resources to help emergency risk communicators prepare and effectively respond in the event of a crisis.
Current Issue - Issue 3:
Emergency and risk communication groups are using multiple ways to reach their audience, whether it's through high technology like the Web or YouTube, or other lesser-known techniques through low-tech methods like those employed by the Sierra County Department of Health. No matter what the budget and the available technology, risk communicators are finding creative ways to reach their audiences. In this third issue of The Risk Communicator (RC), we explore the use of technology and creativity in emergency communication responses.
In this issue’s feature story, “Emergency and Risk Communication on the Web,” we explore principles and strategies for communicating on the Web's interconnected platforms.
