Various nursing home and health officials met to understand how to accurately get information out to the public. TV, newspaper, and radio representatives were there, and participants say it's important to understand what help the media may need.
"It's a matter of making these people a little more at ease when the media comes in," said Henderson Co. EMA Director Larry Koerber. "And even though they may not be the PIO, public information officer, they will have an opportunity to be interviewed by the media."
Eyewitness News Tabnie Dozier spoke at today's meeting and represented our station.
The next event is in April, focusing on severe weather. Chief Meteorologist Wayne Hart plans to be there.
