The Public Relations Division provides a link between the Town of West Hartford and the community it serves.
Public awareness campaigns are developed and aimed at clarifying complex issues, changing or reinforcing behavior, offering seasonal reminders, improving the town’s image, and engaging its residents. Public information is carried out through a variety of methods including social media, cable TV programming, publications, press releases, special events, person-to-person collaboration, Town Manager's Report to the Town Council, and an electronic community newsletter on special events and programs that is distributed to nearly 7000 subscribers. The division manages the content of the Town of West Hartford's web site.
The Public Relations Division helps community organizations organize special events such as road races, charity walks and parades by coordinating all the town agencies to support the event. The division also manages the event calendar for the outdoor community area at Blue Back Square where concerts and other performances are held. The Park Road Parade and the Memorial Day Parade are coordinated through this division as well.
During times emergency, this public relations specialist serves as the Public Information Officer at the Emergency Operations Center.
