  • Engaging Paddlesports Enthusiasts & Sharing Safety Messaging

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    This presentation will focus on outreach efforts in Indiana and nationally that are targeted to engage young audiences regarding the safety at dams, particularly low head dams.

    Social media and augmented reality applications have provided effective tools for state and federal agencies to communicate with to those who recreate on waterways. This presentation will focus on outreach efforts in Indiana and nationally that are targeted to engage young audiences regarding the safety at dams, particularly low head dams. Statistics indicate that paddlesports is one of the fastest growing recreational activities in the U.S., resulting in more people on our waterways. The corollary to this trend is that more people will encounter the hazards and risks associated with waterway use. Log jams, strainers, rock ledges and boulders create natural challenges to paddlers. However, cultural imprints on our waterways like low head dams, bridge piers, and narrowing channels have amplified the risks. 

    This presentation will describe a series of multi-media messages and map application tools that have been developed by DNR Conservation Officers and Indiana Silver Jackets to engage young professionals and active teens to the safety message. Today’s messages have to draw people in and engage the viewer with short concise and impactful messaging.

    Alex Otte

    Recreational Boating Safety Advocate

    As a 20-year-old college student from Lexington, Kentucky, I am a victim of Boating Under the Influence, and have refused to ever be labeled a victim. I am a student, a communications intern, a traumatic amputee, a professional photographer, a Mother’s Against Drunk Driving representative, and an activist. Since my crash nearly seven years ago, I have made it my mission to make sure that what happened to me never happens to anyone else. In 2015, I was named MADD’s youth activist of the year for my work in legislation. I have represented one law in the state of Kentucky, and am now working to revamp it, and will hopefully soon be working on another. I have traveled to speak at high schools, churches, colleges, conferences in Kentucky, Washington, D.C., and elsewhere. I have participated in panel discussions regarding drinking and driving and underage drinking. I also mentor new amputees and some other victims of severe trauma across the state of Kentucky.

    2012 conference presentation on multi-agency collaborations.

    Hosted by the Preparedness and Response Committee this Panel Discussion focuses on “Multi-agency collaborations.” Our post-9/11 world clarified that the responsibility of our nation’s security and protection from natural disasters is equally divided among federal, state, local and tribal governments as well as the private sector. This responsibility has brought on the emergence of interagency cohesion, which can only be fulfilled through information sharing, communication interoperability and standardized training.
