Handling the Media

When it comes to handling the media during emergencies it's important to know what NOT to do:

Do NOT take photos, videos or post anything to social media.

Do NOT speak to the media directly; refer all inquiries to the person responsible at your company.

By emphasizing these simple steps you can protect your company's reputation, respond to inquiries professionally, and focus your crew on dealing with the incident and not becoming the source of the story.
