We are here to help

As a member of the professional media, when you are working on a story, please let us know your deadline and what you’re looking for. This enables us to coordinate the materials and resources that will be helpful for your story.

If your story requires an on-site visit, please call us in advance to set a time and entry point, and check in at our Administrative Office when you arrive. We’ll make arrangements for the most convenient entry gate and meeting locations, provide an escort during your visit, and assist with fact-checking, subject matter experts for interviews and more.
