Testimonials

From A Hurricane Sandy Responder:

"The JIC process as taught was a God send. The process worked well and seamless, timely and accurate information went out when needed, questions answered when needed, and Command and Control is happy with our press component. Our PIOs came together, egos went out the door and the process worked. You had a huge impact on the storm and you were not even here."

Thanks again,

Kevin L. Wilson, Trainer
Delaware Emergency Management Agency

"Preparation for a crisis cannot be underestimated. Crisis communications training is not just a necessity - it can truly save lives, and it certainly can save the sanity of communicators when they face the inevitable emergency. Media Survival Group's training is by far the best, most thorough education I have received on the subject - worth every signle penny!"

"The workshop was incredibly valuable and useful, especially for a beginner in crisis communications like myself. The breakout scenarios really brought everything that was presented to life and made it all a very real-life experience. The supporting materials were also extremely useful - Go Book and multimedia and website information. I learned a lot I didn't know and appreciate the opportunity to participate in such a valuable experience. Thank you! You were all just terrific."
