THE FOUNDATION – RESEARCH REPORT
Best Practices― What We Learned
CSA
NATIONWIDE
Collaboration with “on-the-ground” organizations are
critical
Leverage partnerships with organizations, private
sector and surrounding communities
Multi-channel approach based on audience
Understand target audiences
Incentives help to drive participation
Leverage existing national materials (primarily
Ready.gov) and tailor locally
Need for “one stop shop” or “central clearinghouse” of
information
Prioritize risks and hazards to focus messages
Must consider messaging translation for targeted
audiences (language and meaning)
Simple and clear in design and message
“Meet them where they are!” (Language, ease,
simplicity, relevance)
Focus also on relationships – “Stuff is not as
important as relationships and a plan.”
