WASHINGTON, D.C.—The National Capital Region, consisting of the District of Columbia and counties in Maryland and Virginia, has tapped the Consortium for Risk & Crisis Communication—a partnership between Widmeyer Communications and the Center for Risk Communications—to produce risk communications messages and materials to help the region prepare for 12 possible disasters, especially terrorist attacks employing chemical, biological or nuclear weapons. 

Messages and materials will be developed with several audiences in mind, including the public and the media in the National Capital Region. In addition, the Consortium will provide training in risk communications for media spokespersons. The $355,000 contract is funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
