NTSB to Offer Training Class on Emergency Communications

National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is devoting two days at its Training Center to offer guidance to aviation public affairs professionals on how to most effectively manage emergency communications in the aftermath of a major aircraft incident.

The training will be offered on Oct. 23-24, 2014, at the NTSB Training Center in Ashburn, VA, and is geared towards communications professionals working with airports, airlines, air charter operators and corporations with aviation departments.

Attendees will learn the process by which investigation-related information is verified and released to the public, how aviation incidents are covered by various media outlets and the role social media plays in the distribution and consumption of breaking news. In addition, aviation communications professionals will provide case studies highlighting best practices and lessons learned during previous aircraft incidents.
