Emergency Management Australia Podcast - Episode 18
September 04, 2016
In times of emergency, we know that everyone has a role to play. The fire emergency services help put out bushfires, our paramedics attend to the injured and the SES can rescue stranded people. What role does the fourth estate play? This episode explores the relationship between emergency management professionals and the media—tracing the steps of journalists covering unfolding disasters. We interview ABC News Director Gaven Morris and ABC Hobart’s Joel Rheinberger to gain a better understanding of their role. We also interview Nick Arvantis from Beyond Blue to discuss first responders.
