Course Description

MGT-902 - Managing Public Information for All Hazards Incidents

This course code has changed.  It was previously CDP-009-06

The four-day APIO course combines lectures, facilitated discussion, activities, and exercises, allowing participants to apply knowledge and skill to manage a JIC in an emergency situation. This is accomplished with lectures in risk and crisis information, legal issues, policies, interpersonal skills, and emergency information systems. Activities such as the writing exercise and the news conference exercise allow the PIO to practice skill sets required to conduct the practical exercise on the final day.
