3Ts for Reducing Lead in Drinking Water: Telling

Telling Resources

How to Organize a Workshop or Open House

This document includes an agenda and discussion guidelines for organizing a lead in drinking water workshop or open house.

How to Set up An Information Center

An onsite Lead in Drinking Water information display serves as a very visible sign that your school or child care center is taking the initiative on this issue. Furthermore, it does not have to be elaborate to be effective. Your display can range from a simple bulletin board or table in the main office where pamphlets are available, to a professional-style kiosk and even a manned information center. Select the option that works best for your facility based on available time and resources.

Issue and Crisis Management

At the heart of an effective issue/crisis management plan is preparation and coordination to deliver information swiftly, professionally and consistently. Preventing issues from escalating into crises demands a proactive approach designed to shape public opinion, defuse flashpoints, and counter any actual or potentially negative, misleading or misinformed word-of-mouth and/or media coverage.
