A Good PR Turn: Providing Community Disaster Information
Wow, here's a great example of a community relations service by PR people in tornado-prone Central Illinois. Might fit for your community, too. For four years, Peoria Public Radio advises, a group of media relations people have been operating Central Illinois Emergency Information. They started "communicating with news agencies about press briefings and other derails people need to know." The service is available to any municipality requesting it during an emergency and is an outgrowth of a Homeland Security best practice.

Why not check with your Illinois colleagues potentially on behalf of your own communities? Central Illinois Emergency Information has a Facebook page under its name.
