Thank you for covering the programs and services Tulare County Health & Human Services Agency (HHSA) provides to our community. As a collaborative community partner, HHSA maintains a high level of transparency and strives to provide media representatives with access to pertinent information and accommodate publication deadlines.
HHSA’s current protocol for media inquiries is to obtain the article angle and questions from the reporter, inform administrative experts, and gather detailed information. We then schedule interview times or respond via email, and facilitate any necessary follow up. It is important to note that the Agency maintains a staff of 2,000 employees located in 35 facilities and is in the business of providing public services in a fast-paced environment. Advance notice via phone or email from media outlets is always appreciated.
HHSA is dedicated to protecting and strengthening the well-being of the community. Working with our media partners is important to our mission and allows for the provision of timely and accurate information which informs, educates, and protects the public. We look forward to continued collaboration with your organization.
