Emergency Response Team classes held

Disaster and emergency reporting are key components of KMUD Newsroom production as well as part of the overall mission of the station. Several years ago the News Department organized an Emergency Response Team (ERT) to assist news staff in reporting during emergency events such as fire, major landslides, floods and earthquakes.  We are now in progress of expanding this service. The ERT includes people who are able to send photos and audio clips to the newsroom, others who can travel to KMUD at a moment's notice to help during a major emergency, and people who produce stories for the Local News. In response to a scary fire season projected by CAL FIRE, KMUD News has prepared a series of classes that can serve as training for people newly interested in helping with this effort or as a review for previous ERT members. Anyone who wants to work with KMUD News is invited to the upcoming trainings.

Classes focusing on the Emergency Response Team training will be held this June and July at the KMUD studio at 1144 Redway Drive, Redway. Classes start promptly at 1 pm and run until 3 pm, with more free-form conversation after the class for people who want to collaborate further.

Please RSVP for all classes, so plans can be made for the needed seating. Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
