This page has been established to provide local health departments, hospitals, and other preparedness partners important risk communication information and resources so that they will be prepared to communicate effectively before and during an emergency. 

Crisis and Emergency Risk Communication (CERC) is the urgent response to an emergency in which the public and stakeholders are made aware of what they can do to protect themselves in an emergency. Communicating during an emergency is very different from normal communications. In an emergency, the health and safety of people are involved and every
second counts. This will help with quick and efficient dissemination of information when seconds count most.      

If you have information that would be helpful to post on this page for partners please contact Elizabeth Conklin:Elizabeth.conklin@ct.gov or 860.509.7599
