Communicating on behalf of a public safety agency can be challenging. Janel Vasallo, public information officer (PIO) for the Lakeland Fire Department, will draw upon her experiences and offer insightful tips for professionals working in public relations with limited resources. She will be joined by Robin Tillet, PIO for the Lakeland Police Department. Vasallo and Tillet will share how they’ve had to be creative and think outside of the box at the next meeting of Dick Pope/Polk County chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association May 15, 2019. The meeting, which includes breakfast and networking opportunities, is open to the public.
