Field Report: Community Engagement Strategies and Local Emergency Alerting

“Alerts are only as effective as the number of people in your database.”

—  Nick Holloway, OEM Missoula County

Placing an emphasis on community engagement strategies ensures effective communication during widespread emergency situations. In this 30-minute webinar, Nick Holloway, Missoula County Office of Emergency Management’s Project Coordinator, discusses community engagement strategies and best practices.

Missoula County, MT covers over 2500 square miles. Its population is both concentrated (cities) and dispersed (everyone else).

In this remote section of America, preparing for and successfully communicating during year-round emergencies requires ongoing execution of community engagement strategies and best practices.

During the webinar, Nick shares his experiences responding to emergencies and how he engages his community year round.
