Thomas Fire: PIOs Feel the Heat

Wednesday, Apr. 25, 2018 from 9 – 11 AM


Ventura County Fire Dept Headquarters

165 Durley Avenue
Conference Rooms A & B
Camarillo, CA 93010


The County of Ventura and PRSA California Gold Coast Chapter are pleased to present a panel presentation including several of our local Public Information Officers and their communication efforts with local residents during the Thomas Fire. The Thomas Fire affected so many different agencies, departments and organizations, that it touched almost everyone.


Even though we will certainly touch on the huge media response and the work of the field PIOs, we will also hear about the PIO work that was not happening on-camera. Some of the topics to be discussed will include news releases, translations, evacuation alerts, social media, community meetings, websites, recovery, etc. The expectation is for a wide-ranging discussion from all in attendance.

9 a.m. Morning Refreshments compliments of: PRSA California Gold Coast Chapter
9:30 a.m. Discussion/Conversation
11 a.m. Conclusion
