Course Description: Public relations and crisis communications is often overlooked at the utility setting. However, by being proactive with both public relations, and incorporating social media, a utility can establish positive and productive relationships with their customers, city/town officials, and the general public as a whole. In addition, proper preparation for any type of crisis will ensure the smoothest transition back to “normal” for a utility after a major, or even minor incident. This course will provide the background necessary to start a utility off on the right foot with establishing a PR program, diving into the world of social media, and planning ahead for a crisis.

Water supply superintendents, customer service, office staff, operators, public relations practitioners, and related staff will find this course of interest.
