From the Oklahoma City federal building bombing in 1995 to numerous Volusia County high-profile murder and crime investigations, veteran public information officer Brandon Haught shares his broad first-hand experience in crisis communications interviews at the Volusia/Flagler Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association’s annual Media Day Training on May 13 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at LPGA International.

“The media day training will incorporate real world event case studies and   will provide an opportunity to step into the spotlight to put that training information to use,” said Brandon Haught, public information officer for the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

“This popular event is an opportunity for public relations professionals and community partners to gain a better understanding of how to handle the news media during a crisis,” said Stefany Strong, Volusia/Flagler FPRA president. “It is important to provide accurate, timely and key information during high profile situations.”

The event will also feature a Meet and Greet media panel with representatives from media outlets, such as Blaine Tolison, WFTV general assignment reporter.

Register early, as this event sells out fast. Non-members are welcome to attend the 2014 Media Day at LPGA International, 1000 Champions Drive, Daytona Beach at 9 a.m.  The registration fee, which includes lunch, is $18 for students, $30 for FPRA members and $50 for non-members. RSVP by May 12 at or visit pay online.
