SAFER Emergency Preparedness Manual and Social Media Guidelines

Public stations, in return for the privilege of being broadcasters, owe a special responsibility to the communities they serve in times of crisis. The attached Station Action for Emergency Readiness Project (SAFER) Emergency Preparedness Manual is a resource to help make every public station a trusted source of information in emergencies. Topics covered include:

  • Station Responsibilities
  • Emergency Plan
  • Emergency Alert System
  • Providing Useful Information
  • Staying On (or Returning To) the Air
  • Business Continuity
  • And More!
