Dissemination of Public Information

Public Information consists of the processes, procedures, and systems to communicate timely, accurate, and accessible information on an incident’s cause, size, and current situation to the public, responders, media and additional stakeholders (both directly affected and indirectly affected). Public information must be coordinated and integrated across jurisdictions, agencies, and organizations; among Federal, State, tribal, and local governments; and with non-governmental organizations and the private sector.  Well-developed public information, education strategies, and communications plans help to ensure that lifesaving measures, evacuation routes, threat and alert systems, and other public safety information are coordinated and communicated to numerous audiences in a timely, consistent manner.
