CDM - Media Resource Kit
Media Resource Kit

Everyone needs to know how to act during a disaster. The Media Resource Kit is a point of reference for media officials which can make their jobs easier and assist them in being more effective when a hurricane or natural hazard is expected.
 

The objectives of the Kit are:

  • To provide an easily accessible source of background information on disasters for media practitioners in the Caribbean;
     
  • To ensure consistent interpretation and reporting of basic disaster information by media practitioners across the Caribbean;
     
  • To alleviate the pressure placed on disaster management officials during emergencies by the need to constantly explain basic concepts, terminology, and practices to the media;
     
  • To demonstrate recognition of the important role of the media in disaster management and the commitment to increase cooperation and collaboration between media and disaster management professionals.
