This fast-paced, hands-on, interactive training is designed to help those involved in Public Safety to communicate more effectively with the News Media and Public, both routinely and during times of crisis.   In addition to instruction, an assortment of video clips demonstrating both good and bad media relations incidents are projected on-screen.   The class is conducted by Emmy Award Winning veteran broadcast news reporter and author Russell Ruffin who has worked with both Fox News and NBC, covering such stories as the Fall of the Soviet Union, Columbine High School Shootings, the 9-11 Attack, Oklahoma City Bombing, as well as Police and Fire beats.

Class Participation:
To make the experience more realistic, a full-size TV News camera is brought in so that everyone in the class can practice before a LIVE camera.    A variety of Breaking News Simulations are run and each student goes before the LIVE camera for interviews and news conferences.  The instructor and the rest of the class act as reporters by asking tough questions.    Participants are given an objective critique, along with a DVD video of their performance.

Those attending will include Law Enforcement, Firefighters, Prosecutors, Emergency Management and other First Responders.  Training is designed for Public Information Officers and Command/Supervisory Staff.
