Consider what resources you will need to run a 24-hour emergency public information operation in terms of space, equipment, and support services.

Logistical considerations include:

  • Where would you hold a media briefing? Is it easily accessible? Is the room large enough? How good is the sound quality?
  • Do you have sufficient power on site to meet the needs of the media?
  • What equipment will you need (computers, wi-fi, printers, mobile phones, office supplies, etc.)?
  • Will you have access to equipment 24/7 if needed?
  • Is back-up equipment available if needed (especially mobile phone chargers, printers, computers)?
