National Safety Council CEO Debbie Hersman and the NSC Communications team work around the clock to bring life-saving safety messages to the widest audience possible. Those messages have attracted the attention of all major national news outlets and scores of local media. In fact, media interest in NSC and its mission of saving lives has never been greater.
In 2015, we built a television studio at our headquarters in Itasca, IL. While Debbie continues to travel widely, she has been known to do more than 20 live-feed interviews in one day with reporters from across the country.
Below is just a sampling of news clips featuring Debbie and NSC staff. You can find more on the NSC YouTube channel.
