As evidenced in this report, terrestrial radio and television broadcasting is a critically important medium for information dissemination to the public in times of emergencies. The intrinsic one-to-many broadcast architecture and the geographic diversity of terrestrial broadcast transmission facilities provide high service reliability during crises of all types. The professional compilation and analysis of information that is emblematic of broadcast journalism provides high quality information available when and where it is most needed. Fixed, mobile and portable terrestrial broadcast receivers are readily available, inexpensive and virtually ubiquitous in most societies.

In many regions, radio and television broadcasters and government authorities collaborate in ensuring highly reliable services during emergencies, via the availability of back-up equipment and supplies, as well as standardised procedures and checklists intended to ensure a high degree of emergency preparedness and continued information flow to the public. In times of crisis and disaster, or wherever mass dissemination of information is required instantaneously, radio and television broadcasting is unparalleled in its ability to effectively reach affected populations with relevant information-rich media content.

The case studies in this report represent only a few of countless examples that attest to the global importance of terrestrial broadcasting, helping to protect and save lives during local, national and international emergencies.
