Risk Communication

Risk Communication

Virtually every day, crisis and emergency risk communication is needed somewhere in public health. Whenever a crisis occurs, communicators must to be ready to provide information to help people make the best possible decisions for their health and well-being. This must be done in rapid timeframes and without knowing everything about the crisis. Yet often the types of disasters that public health must address can be anticipated. CDC has developed a process for planning and conducting crisis and emergency risk communication. On this page you will find this process and a wealth of information to help you prepare if an emergency occurs and you are part of the response team.
