AbstractCommunications officers (COs) can greatly help the communications efforts of scientists. Among many other aspects, they can help scientists define a clear message, schedule interviews, and detect and correct misinformation. Developing collaboration with COs takes a bit of time and effort, but when a largely felt earthquake occurs, they make the communication tasks of seismologists far easier to handle. Collaboration between seismologists and COs can be mutually beneficial for routine requests for information as well as after an earthquake occurrence that raised public's interest.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Scientists should make full use of the help that Communication Officers (COs) can offer. This relationship should remain active for special events, such as anniversaries or small earthquakes. Building the relationship between scientists and COs takes a bit of time and effort, but when the largely felt earthquake occurs, the wonderful collaboration will make the communication tasks of seismologists easier to handle.
