The best time to prepare for a hurricane is before it is even a possibility on the weather radar. Whether it is a category 1 or category 5, communicators need to be able to respond quickly and communicate with our employees and external stakeholders. Likewise, brands can encounter many “storms” if they are unprepared and not able to communicate with their stakeholders. And sometimes these storms develop into a full force crisis — the PR version of a hurricane. If you think it’s not going to happen to you, simply put, you’re naïve. There is so much we can learn from hurricane preparedness and apply it to how we can prepare for a PR crisis.

Join us for an emergency communications workshop that will help you prepare your organization for the 2020 hurricane season. We are partnering with the City of Jacksonville Emergency Preparedness Division to learn more about how the city responds during adverse weather which effects the First Coast. Learn the basics of incident command, and how various departments in our local government coordinate and communicate with the public during adverse weather events.

Through the workshop, you will learn tips to modify your own emergency plan, and connect with other First Coast communicators which you may need to connect with during a major weather event.

Staying prepared will help you build peace of mind and a sense of security in the midst of adversity. Join us for a great event as we stay ready for hurricane season.
