AWR 209 Working with the Media: A Short Course for Emergency Responders is designed to provide emergency responders with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to interact with the media and perform public information functions in preparation for and during incidents. Many agencies from small and rural communities do not have a full- or part-time public information officer (PIO) on staff and responders often assume this responsibility without formal training and practice. The intent of this course is to prepare responders for interacting with the media when required, whether it be roadside at the scene of an incident or for conveying directions to the public in a crisis situation.
You have to be a US Citizen. Permanent US Resident Aliens or Green Card Holders are treated as US Citizens for the purpose of attending training funded by DHS/FEMA. They do not have to be vetted through FEMA Security and FEMA International Affairs.
