Tom Hipper Presents at the Annual Preparedness Summit in Atlanta, GA
CPHRC Program Manager, Tom Hipper, presented at the 10th Annual Preparedness Summit in Atlanta, Georgia on April 14, 2015. He demonstrated the use of a social media message library CPHRC is developing for the Pennsylvania Department of Health. The library features message templates for Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and includes content relevant to the preparedness, response, and recovery phases of 23 different hazards. The pre-scripted messages are being designed to help public information officers and other spokespersons create and deliver timely, accurate, and consistent information that will likely be needed during a public health emergency.
