This chapter discusses how to determine the appropriate risk communication methods. Which methods of communication will best meet both your purpose and objectives and your audience's need? The basic categories to choose from include information materials, visual representation of risk, face‐to‐face communication, working with the media, stakeholder participation, social media, and technology‐assisted communication. The chapter discusses how each of these relates to the purpose and objectives and audience's needs, as well as the time involved and how much technical knowledge is needed to effectively share risk information.
