Day 1: Who Are The Experts?

Hey Everyone, Welcome to 30 Days, 30 Ways 2021! Its Eric from the 30 Days Gang, here to get this year’s challenge started. Today we kick off our 12th year of this challenge. Last year I mentioned that many of the group that normally brings this challenge together had actively been involved with the COVID-19 response in our community since March of 2020. While some of the official activities surrounding our work related to COVID ended in July, it once again impacted many of the pieces leading up to this annual challenge. That said…we decided we still would once again bring you our annual challenge. This year with a focus on community. This year we want you to not only take the challenge personally, we want you to challenge the community around you… Your family, your work or school, your place of worship, your neighborhood, and yes, even your town or city!! So Let’s get started…

In today’s world information can feel like a fire hose, hitting us hard from every angle with different and conflicting messages. The media seems, like no matter which network has their own spin on what used to be just the facts. Conspiracy theories and so called Subject Matter Experts are everywhere. Even when it comes to emergency information, there can be “noise” everywhere.

DAY 1 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts    So today we want to ask… How do you sift through all of this media noise to find the accurate information? How do you make sure you are getting a well rounded version of the truth. How do you find the information you need related to emergency notices?

Level Up: 5 pts For today’s level up… we want you to share your tips and tricks of finding verified sources. Where do you go to find the details.. How to you make sure what you see on Social Media or even in the news is accurate? This would also be a good time to connect with your local emergency manager or public health agency.. and let them know you are taking the 30 Days Challenge.
