NTSB TO OFFER TRAINING

Thursday, August 8, 2013
By George Hatcher


The National Transportation Safety Board is devoting two days at its Training Center to offer guidance to aviation public affairs professionals on how to most effectively manage emergency communications following a major aircraft accident or incident.

The training will be offered on October 24-25, 2013, at the NTSB Training Center in Ashburn, Virginia, (near Washington, D.C.) and is aimed at communications professionals working with airports, airlines, air charter operators and corporations with aviation departments.

NTSB specialists will explain the process by which investigation-related information is verified and released to the news media and the family members of those affected by a major accident.

Members of the national news media will be there to discuss how they cover aviation accidents and how social media is changing how breaking news is disseminated and consumed. Aviation communications professionals will provide case studies highlighting best practices and lessons learned during previous aircraft incidents and accidents.
