Community Connectors Program 
The Community Connectors program is a model for how emergency response planners can develop relationships and open lines of communication with diverse members of their community prior to an emergency. Multnomah County Health Department (in Oregon) used an internal resource to conduct this program: staff who had already established relationships with an underserved community and were willing to strengthen the relationship between the community and the health department. The main role of Community Connectors is to support public information and risk communication measures under the director of the Public Information Officer (PIO). Materials include an exercise script and player guide.
