Public Information

The Joint Information Center (JIC)

The Pueblo Community Joint Information Center (JIC) is a physical location where public information personnel gather, verify and coordinate information prior to release to the public and media member. A JIC is activated when the demand for public information is so great that one or two public information professionals are unable to keep up. A JIC may also be actived when several agencies have the need to release information because the event is so large. In those cases, it is the intent of the JIC to ensure coordinated information, to prioritize the messages, and to facilitate the news conferences involving so many agencies.

An integral part of the JIC is the Joint Information System (JIS). The JIS describes the communication links between public information personnel and their command and operations centers. JIS allows the JIC to receive and confirm information so it can be released to the public.

The advantages of this JIC is a coordinated release of information from a variety of sources. It minimizes conflicting information, maximizes public information resources and meets the need of the media. The JIC can provide news briefings and conferences, written statements (fact sheets, releases etc), qualified and informed spokespeople and answers to the public and media. Essentially we are the one-stop shop for official government information during and emergency or disaster.
