NEWS AND TERRORISM: COMMUNICATING IN A CRISIS is a series of workshops being held around the nation that involve local participants -- including journalists, government officials, emergency managers, and scientists and engineering experts -- in a simulation of a response to a terrorist attack in their hometown. Sponsored by the National Academies, the workshops are designed to educate participants on the challenge and importance of getting accurate and timely information to the public during a crisis. Participants also will learn about the impact of dirty bombs and other possible weapons, and reporters will get practical advice on protecting themselves.
Thursday, Dec. 9, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at University of Miami Knight Center, 400 S.E. Second Ave., Miami, Fla.
REPORTERS WHO WISH TO ATTEND MUST REGISTER IN ADVANCE by contacting Randy Atkins, National Academy of Engineering, 202-334-1508 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Future workshops will be offered in the following cities: Austin; Atlanta; Denver; Boston; and San Francisco.
