Warning and Informing

“Our job as communicators is to help the public make informed decisions about their safety and the safety of their loved ones, Radiation emergencies can be scary, so our impulse in the past has been to first calm public anxiety. Now our primary goal is to translate the seriousness of radiological events into informed preparation and action without causing undue panic.”

Jessica Wieder, Director of radiation information and outreach at the United States Environmental Protection Agency)
