The Athens County EMA, 911& PIO Network along with the Ohio EMA Training and Exercise Branch hosted an EMA-G290/291 Basic Public Information Officer Series Course in Glouster, Ohio, February 15 – 17, 2017 at the Hocking, Athens, Perry Community Action facility.
The “Free” Basic Public Information Officer (PIO) Course is designed to prepare participants to function as full or part-time PIOs. The training helped to equip participants with basic skills such as oral and written communications, and understanding and working with the media, and basic tools and techniques needed to perform effectively as a PIO. Fifteen participants from around Ohio attended the three-day training.
We would like to thank the course instructors Kevin Sur and Erica Creech for their time and professionalism during the class.
