Media access is a critical component of the overall external communications effort. Media embeds with responders or media embarks aboard response assets are highly encouraged, to the extent they can be safely accomodated. They should be coordinated through the Unified Area Command Joint Information Center (UAC JIC), which will ensure proper credentialing and provide any necessary ground rules or hold harmless agreements.
