Join one of our expert sessions during the 2022 NREP Conference; 

Planning for a Virtual Joint Information System and Joint Information Center 

During a crisis or emergency, assembling communications staff at a physical JIC may be impractical or unsafe. A virtual JIS/JIC serves the need for timely information gathering and message dissemination in a response by collecting information from responders and communications staff across a wide area to develop essential tools in a virtual setting. Discuss the benefits of pivoting to a virtual JIS/JIC with Holly Hardin and Mark Basnight.  


Addressing Misinformation and Combating Disinformation and Malinformation on Social Media 

Misinformation is false, but not created or shared with the intention of causing harm, while disinformation is intentionally created to mislead, harm or manipulate a person, social group, organization, or country, and malinformation is based on fact, but used out of context to mislead, harm or manipulate. Distinguishing misinformation, disinformation, malinformation and credible information is critical to stakeholder understanding regarding the impact of the crises and emergencies. Attendees will learn to equip themselves with effective tools, knowledge, and resources that do not impede the free flow of reliable information. 


Communications in a Radiation Emergency – Things to Consider as a Radiation Professional 

Words have meaning, and subtle shifts in the language we use can have a large impact on the message that’s being delivered and the perceptions of the receiving audience. This is especially important when speaking about topics that may cause anxiety in people…such as radiation. Practice tips from Certified Health Physicist, Steve Sugarman, to effectively communicate the differences between such things as exposure and contamination. While the differences in various concepts may seem simple to a health physicist, they can also be a primary driver in emergency response.
