In this episode of Blue Line, The Podcast, we catch author and retired civilian member Helen C. Escott from her home in St. John's, N.L. Helen created the RCMP's Media Relations/Communications Unit in Newfoundland and Labrador in 1998. She became the first female senior communications strategist and media relations spokesperson for the RCMP in that province.
She was the communications lead on high-profile events, including the RCMP's Newfoundland and Labrador response on 9/11.
"It was a very frightening time," Escott shares during the episode. "People didn't know what it was... Was it the beginning of World War III?"
