APPENDIX II (EXAMPLE)
1. General. To facilitate news coverage of the dedication ceremonies, facilities
appropriate to the occasion will be established. This will include a CIBNAM at the
Barrancas Beach House located across the road from the Naval Aviation Museum, the
sub-CIBNAM in a tented area to the west and rear of the general audience at the dedication
ceremony, an alternate sub-CIBNAM set up inside the Naval Aviation Museum in the
event of inclement weather and three roped off areas with necessary power and elevation
equipment to accommodate still and video photographers, and so forth. (See figure A3-1.)
a. CIBNAM. The necessary tables, chairs and space are now available at the
Barrancas Beach House. Installation of communication equipment in accordance with
Appendix III of this public affairs plan can begin as the OIC, CIBNAM deems necessary.
The main area of the CIBNAM will be designated for use by the media. Typewriters will
be available for media use.
b. Sub-CIBNAM. This area to the west and rear of the general audience should
accommodate one working table and two desks. Necessary chairs and supplies will be
furnished by the CIBNAM. This area will serve as one of the filing areas for reporters
and includes telephones.
c. Alternate Sub-CIBNAM. This area, to be outfitted in the same manner as the
sub-CIBNAM, will be ready for use in the event of inclement weather and indoor
ceremonies. An alternate sub-CIBNAM will be located on the mezzanine floor in a side
cover area overlooking the main display area of the museum. Telephones for media use
will be available inside the museum.
d. Roped-off Areas for Press Use. To accommodate still and video photographers
and radio media, two roped-off areas are to be established, each within 50 feet of the main
podium used for the dedication ceremony. Access to these mess during the dedication will
be controlled by a press officer. Reporters will have free access to the sub-CIBNAM for
filing purposes at all times.
(1) Press Area One. This area will be located to the west of the main podium and
measures approximately 10 by 10 feet. Electrical power (100 amps) will be provided to
accommodate necessary television needs (four outlets). Two hydraulic mechanical stands
provide an 8-foot lift on an approximately 5 by 5 foot platform that will be provided.
(2) Press Area Two. This area will be located directly in front of the main podium
and will consist of an area about 20 by 30 feet. A one-tiered platform (3 feet high by 5
feet deep by 20 feet long) for elevation purposes will be situated in this area. This tier will
be equipped to handle 100 amps of power through 12 electrical outlets and radio needs.
