Communicating Risk for Resilient Communities
Wednesday, March 26, 2014 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
What have we learned about communicating risk from past disasters? How have communities responded? In this event, participants will engage in a scenario about the complexities and challenges of sharing the right information, at the right time, and in the right form and its impact on communities. Participants will have an opportunity to ask tough questions and engage in a role-playing activity that will test their assumptions about communicating the risk of disasters.
-When do you communicate about risk? How do we understand risk?
-What form should risk communication take?
-How do you manage risk communication? How does one act on it?
