Informing the Public During Emergencies

Informing the Public During Emergencies

Ice storm. Hurricane. Mass shootings. Chemical spills. When public safety is at stake, public broadcasters have an important role to play.

Last year, North Carolina endured an unprecedented array of natural and manmade calamities.  Partnering with various state agencies, UNC-TV provided critical notifications to the public utilizing satellite and terrestrial IP video delivery methods.

Hear from UNC-TV's senior director of technology Fred Engel and his colleague Adam Woodlief, the director of UNC-TV's engineering services, about what 2016 taught them, how they plan, how they interact with other emergency management agencies, and how the next situation will be handled.
