Course Title: G-290 Public Information Officer Basic


Course Description:

Emergency Public Information Officers (PIOs) are responsible for ensuring that the affected public receives accurate and timely information during an emergency. Armed with good information, people are better able to make good decisions and, by doing so, contribute to the overall response goal of saving lives and protecting property.

Some PIOs tasked with planning for, developing, and disseminating emergency public information at the State, tribal, and local levels bear this considerable responsibility concurrently with other job assignments. Others may have had limited prior experience or training in public information techniques. These PIOs, especially, must be provided with the opportunity to learn and practice the skills they will use on the job.

The Basic Public Information Officer Course (G290) (2 Day class) is designed to prepare participants to function as full- or part-time PIOs. Additionally, this training is a prerequisite and foundation for more advanced training that takes participants from the awareness level to the mastery level in their public information careers.
