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!
Checklists, charts, diagrams, photos and action items are included in the Manual. Download a copy for your station by clicking on the attached document, below.
In addition, an appendix to the SAFER Manual on how to use mobile devices and social media applications in a disaster is included in the attachments, below (SAFER social media).
Station Action For Emergency Readiness (SAFER) is a joint project of the National Federation of Community Broadcasters (NFCB) and National Public Radio (NPR), with funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB)
