The Correct Answer:

A. In most emergencies, you will use a mixture of low- and high-technology tools to communicate.


Emergency communication generally includes warnings and alerts, curfews, self-protective actions, directives about evacuation, and information about family members, required resources, available assistance, and response status. Effectively delivered as well as well-conceived emergency message helps in enhancing the security of the public, protecting the property, eliciting cooperation, assisting the families in reuniting, instilling the public confidence, and facilitating the response efforts.

Several communication tools can be used to enhance the delivery of messages—for example, social media, the internet, broadcast media, print, and in-person events. Every tool has its limitation as well as advantages. Always ensure that the emergency communication is clear, adequate, and specific. In most emergencies, a mixture of low and high technology tools is used to make the communication better and clear. Clear communication helps to deliver the message correctly to the target audience. It also helps in enhancing the comprehension of the message and limits errors.
