As the liaison between the media and city hall, my goal is to ensure the public is informed about what’s going on in their city, and that city hall is aware of constituent concerns. My goal is to facilitate as many lines of communication as possible, both internally among employees and external among the residents and stakeholders.
The role of the Community & Media Relations Officer – often called the Public Information Officer (or PIO) – oversees communication at the Joint Information Center (or JIC) within the Incident Command System (or ICS) in an emergency situation.
