ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the crisis event media interaction of fire departments in the United States. According to the author, the public spokesperson of a fire department needs to be able to communicate difficult information in a way that increases the public's confidence. The media is a ready and willing partner to both assist the fire community with its response to crisis events, not an added stressor. Fire chiefs, officers and public information officers should seek out opportunities to use the media as a resource.
