MONROE - Rural first responders are often thrust into the role of a public information officer fielding questions from the news media and working with media outlets to quickly and effectively communicate information to the public. The Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium is offering a free media awareness course certified by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that provides insight into helping to understand how the media works and how best to work with available media outlets. This 7-hour, instructor-led course, "AWR 209 - Dealing with the Media: A Short Course for Rural First Responders," will be offered from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 16 at the Green County Justice Center, 2841 6th St., Monroe.
