    In this assignment you are addressing how to create a media communication plan for the response phase.Put yourself in the role of an emergency manager who is doing initial work on response plans for the type of critical incident shown in the Riverbend City scenario— a man-made accident. You are the Riverbend City media liaison tasked with helping the following groups create media plans for the response phase of an emergency:

    • Emergency and government managers.
    • First responders.
    • Business leaders.
    • Heads of families or households
    • Personnel in charge of or dealing with special needs groups such as the elderly, non-English speaking people, children, et cetera.

    FEMA recently put a lot of attention on core capabilities directly related to the response phase of an emergency. In your position as media liaison, prepare an example press release that addresses a summary of the specific core capabilities.Your purpose is to introduce the target audience to what goes into a well-rounded media communication during the response phase. Use your personal and professional experiences, your readings, as well as situations you have seen in the Riverbend City scenario that would lend themselves to planning media communication during the response phase. Be sure to cite your resources.In your press release:

    1. Provide summaries of the following core capabilities directly related to the response phase:
      • Public information and warning.
      • Situational assessment.
      • On-scene security, protection, and law enforcement.
      • Critical transportation.
    2. Develop one example, using the train derailment/chemical spill as your context, that illustrates each of the four core capabilities (public information and warning; situational assessment; on-scene security, protection, and law enforcement; and critical transportation).
    3. Create a plan for implementing one of the response measures you have identified.


    The press release should be 3–4 pages, not including a title page and the references page(s).

    • Written communication: Must be free of errors that detract from the overall message.
    • Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12 point.

    [u07d1] Unit 7 Discussion 1

    Response Management

    Competencies Addressed in This Discussion

    • Competency 1: Apply emergency planning procedures to critical incidents.
    • Competency 3: Specify evaluation techniques for emergency management response effectiveness.


    Managing a response to disaster has many moving parts. Examine the Response Management Desk media piece to see articles, government guidelines, Web resources and photos of an actual disaster, a flood in Fargo, ND.Public service announcements play an enormous role in preventing death and damages to property during disasters. Perry and Lindell (2007) point out that the goal of an announcement is to, “convince as many people as possible that they need to protect themselves from the disaster impact. To create the most persuasive message possible, you have to understand the traits of warning recipients and the traits of people in your community” (p.329).


    Perry, R. W., & Lindell, M. K. (2007). Emergency planning. Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley & Sons, Inc.


    Using the details you see in the Response Management Desk media piece,

    1. Construct a public service announcement for delivery either before or during this disaster. Remember the point of such an announcement to persuade people to take protective actions in the face of a disaster.
    2. Describe your audience and your chosen method of delivery. Explain why you chose that method to deliver your announcement.
    3. Determine whether there are special characteristics or needs of your audience that you should keep in mind as you craft your announcement.
