G290 Basic Public Information Officer Course

This course is being delivered by David King, Coordinator Campbell County EMA.

A FEMA Student Identification (SID) Number is required to enroll for this class. You can get one at:

Date: March 22-23, 2018

Time : 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Course will be at the “Community Room” in the Campbell County Fire Department/Station 1, which is at 106 Rohan Avenue, Gillette, WY, 82716.

Bring laptops or tablets as you will be composing a news release for presentation to the class.

Course Length: 2 Days

Course Description:  Emergency Public Information Officers (PIOs) are responsible for ensuring that the affected public receives accurate and timely information during an emergency. Armed with good information, people are better able to make good decisions and, by doing so, contribute to the overall response goal of saving lives and protecting property.

Some PIOs tasked with planning for, developing, and disseminating emergency public information at the State, tribal, and local levels bear this considerable responsibility concurrently with other job assignments. Others may have had limited prior experience or training in public information techniques. These PIOs, especially, must be provided with the opportunity to learn and practice the skills they will use on the job.

The Basic Public Information Officer Course (G290) is designed to prepare participants to function as full- or part-time PIOs. Additionally, this training is a prerequisite and foundation for more advanced training that takes participants from the awareness level to the mastery level.

Course Goal:  This training will equip participants with the basic skills needed to be full- or part-time PIOs such as oral and written communications, and understanding and working with the media, and basic tools and techniques needed to perform effectively.

Target Audience:  The primary audience for this training is individuals who have public information responsibilities as their main job or as an auxiliary function at the state, tribal, or local level of government.
