Media staging area

The Media staging area is a centralized location for all accredited members of the Media to set up equipment and receive information from the Public Information Officer(s). This area is initially set up by the on-scene commander, however in certain dynamic situations, it may be set up by the first responding officers. If the original officer or on-scene commander establishes a Media staging area that is “too far” from the scene, please contact the Public Relations Unit about your concerns. Once a Public Information Officer arrives on scene, every effort will be made to identify an appropriate media staging area.
