Information for media
To ensure the most effective, accurate information is provided, and to prevent confusion and potential misinformation, the Emergency Operations Control Group will designate authorized spokespeople who are responsible for:
- releasing information to the public and the media
- providing information through the MUN web, email and phone systems
- conducting interviews with media or arranging media interviews
The director of Marketing and Communications or a designate will have responsibility for managing communications in a crisis. This includes designating authorized spokespeople and liaising with public information officers in other agencies.
In the event of a large-scale crisis, a Media Centre will be established in a safe location. This site will provide for the accreditation, coordination and briefing of the media.
In the absence of a Media Centre, please contact Ivan Muzychka, manager, news service: (709) 737-8665; email@example.com; cell (709) 687-9433.
