Both informational and motivational presentations are based on well-researched, logical arguments to ensure clarity and effectiveness in communication.

Within the Incident Command System clarity and effectiveness in communication critical in coordinating responses and ensuring safety. As stated in FEMA official training material “Emergency communications may include alerts and warnings; directives about evacuation, curfews, and other self-protective actions; and information about response status, family members, available assistance, and other matters that impact response and recovery.”

Attributes such as credibility, emotional engagement, and practical instructions are often emphasized, reflecting the need for both logical and motivational elements in presentations to enhance clarity and effectiveness in communication.

This dual approach ensures that the audience not only understands the information but is also motivated to take the necessary actions, which is crucial for the success of emergency management efforts.
