Communicators can be thrust, ready or not, into the thick of local, regional, or national emergencies.

The incredible images of the massive SR530 Landslide in Snohomish County are etched into our memories, and a gnawing question still lingers in many PIOs’ minds: would we be ready to respond if that happened in my community?

Come to the next Olympia Communicators Group meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 5, to learn more about what it was like working in the landslide Joint Information Center, and learn what every PIO should know before disaster strikes in your community.

The program is still developing, but we will have at least one PIO who worked on the OSO Landslide.
