Course Description:

This course introduces participants to what the Public Information Officer (PIO) does in emergency management, along with basic information about the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS). The PIO topics covered include the role of the PIO; communication tools and resources encompassing social media; effective communication; preparing the community through outreach and other means; and communication in an incident. The IPAWS topics covered include what the system is and does, preparing alert and warning messages, and writing common alerting protocol messages. This is a two-day classroom course that gives participants time to perform activities and exercises to reinforce the knowledge and build basic skills.

It is mandatory that the participant complete all 16 hours of this course to receive full credit. Anything less will result in the participant’s need to re-register for another course and start from the beginning.

This course is preceded by the L0146 HSEEP course and both will run in the same week. Students are encouraged to sign up for both the L0146 and L0105 courses. Typically, students take the L0101 Foundations of Emergency Management course first, but the Basic Academy courses can be taken in any order.


Course Goal:

The goal of this course is to enhance the jurisdiction’s public information and warning core capability.


If a participant is taking this course as part of the Academy, then he or she should take E0101, Foundations of Emergency Management, first (but not required). If a participant is taking this course on its own for its public information and warning information and not in fulfillment of the Academy requirements, there are no prerequisites.
