Crisis Communications

Should a disaster such as severe weather, an act of terrorism, plane crash, explosion, chemical spill, multiple vehicle accident or bus wreck bring patients to Children’s of Alabama, a media center will be set up on campus and reports will be issued in a regular and timely fashion via live press briefings and the hospital’s social media outlets ( www.childrensal.org, twitter.com/ChildrensAL, twitter.com/ChildrensALNews and Facebook.com/ChildrensHospitalofAlabama). A special page will also be activated on this site to provide breaking news.

In such circumstances, the media may also obtain information by dialing (205) 638-9100 and asking to page the Media Relations representative on call.
