Public Information Officer Training
September 20, 2018
Yale University, West Campus Conference Center, 800 West Campus Drive, West Haven, CT 06616
This PIO training is designed to provide insight into crisis communications best practices in the context of a radiological terrorism scenario. The training will run in parallel with the Bulldog Thunder TTX. Throughout the three PIO training session, participants will receive situation updates from the main exercise room. These updates will provide context for the training and keep participants up to speed as the scenario unfolds. The PIO group will rejoin the main TTX group for Module Three – the final escalation of the scenario – and draw from the PIO training to support TTX discussion. During a brief group activity in Module Three, PIOs will again group together to discussion the establishment of a Joint Information System while other groups focus on other aspects of incident command.
