• The absence of a frank and fluid communication among the responsible actors (disaster managers, elected officials, experts, the media) before the earthquake strikes will lead in most cases to surmounting problems during and after the earthquake.
• The tendency in the disaster community to underestimate the population capacity to understand and realize fairly complex technical and scientific issues related to seismic risk reduction. Based on our experience both in Venezuela and abroad this paper will offer someconsiderations concerning the role of the media in seismic risk reduction programs and will offer some recommendations directed at minimizing the communicational shortcomings in seismic risk reduction programs.
