The Risk Communicator Newsletter

Risk communicator

Providing information and resources to help emergency risk communicators prepare and effectively respond in the event of a crisis.

About the Risk Communicator Newsletter

The Risk Communicator is produced by CDC's Emergency Risk Communication Branch (ERCB). This publication is designed to provide evidence-based, practical guidance for emergency risk communication strategy and operations. The ERCB will provide newsletters or other updates quarterly.

The ERCB provides primary leadership and staffing for the Emergency Communication System (ECS), CDC's 24/7 all hazards emergency communication and response system. Established in 2002, ECS has coordinated agency-wide emergency risk communication response for over 40 public health emergencies. In this role, ECS is constantly looking for new research and best practices to increase its emergency risk communication effectiveness.

In this electronic newsletter, you'll find summaries of research, theories, and practice that apply to public health emergency communication strategy and operations. Specifically, The RC will include practical tools and techniques, guest interviews with risk communication researchers and practitioners, and feature stories exploring issues related to applying emergency communications principles. We hope The RC becomes a valuable source of practical information that you will use frequently and share with others.

Although we think the summaries and other content are worth reading to generate new ideas and more effective approaches to risk communication, the inclusion of a summary in The RC doesn't imply a CDC endorsement of the article's contents.
