NTSB to Host Aviation Emergency Communications Training Session

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.

The training will be offered Oct. 28-29, 2008, at the NTSB Training Center in Ashburn, Virginia, (near Washington, D.C.) and is aimed at communications professionals working with airports, airlines, and corporations with aviation departments.

Representatives from the NTSB Office of Public Affairs will explain the process by which accident-related information is verified and released to the news media and the family members of those affected by a major accident.

Members of the news media will be there to discuss how previous accidents have been covered and to talk about how new media is changing how breaking news is disseminated and consumed. Airport and airline communications professionals will provide case studies on how communications during previous aircraft incidents and accidents were handled.

Those interested in learning more should see the complete description of the training, registration information, and cost to attend, at www.ntsb.gov/TC/CourseInfo/PA302_2008.htm.
