How can businesses and public entities work together to improve preparedness and response initiatives?
This month’s speaker will give an overview of the recent emergency notification drill conducted by Twin Cities Public Television (TPT) and MN-Homeland Security and Emergency Management. Additionally, advancements with Minnesota’s Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) will be shared with insights into how business and public partnerships can work together to improve preparedness and response initiatives. As part of the TPT and HSEM exercise, emergency information was put out in four different languages (English, Spanish, Somali and Hmong) including the piloted broadcast of an Emergency Alert System (EAS) message and live streaming a mock media briefing. This session will explore how TPT’s broadcast channel 2.5 (TPT|NOW) can serve as a resource for broadcasting weather, preparedness and emergency response content supporting public health and safety initiatives. It will also explore future opportunities to utilize this channel during emergencies and other major events and improving cross-sector continuity partnerships.
