NTMWD has arranged with the Texas Department of Public Safety to host a FEMA Basic Public Information Officer training course Feb. 27 through Mar. 1, 2018 in the training room in Wylie. There is no cost for the course which is a pre-requisite to the FEMA Advanced Public Information Officer training held in Emmitsburg, Maryland. Focusing upon the unique role of the Public Information Officer (PIO) in emergency management, this course will help PIOs or people assigned that role to fine-tune their job skills. Students will explore the role of the PIO in all phases of emergency management. They will look at the multi-faceted duties and challenges of it. Through individual and group activities, students will develop and practice a series of communication skills and identify ways to integrate all phases of emergency management into a comprehensive public information program.
Class space is limited to 30 participants. You can find more details and register here: https://www.preparingtexas.org/ViewCourse.aspx?courseid=a32d7562-18c1-481f-9b9a-b9b3fee29a59
