Crisis Preparation

Creating Plans

Unless you’re an expert in crisis communications, you will likely find it difficult to think strategically when your heart is racing and the TV camera is focused on your face. You are more likely to be credible and in control during a crisis if you have spent time preparing before the crisis occurs. Your company’s reputation is too important to leave to chance. A Crisis Communication Plan is the best way to ensure your organization will respond quickly and effectively, preserving its good name when a crisis hits.

Facilitating Drills

Testing your crisis plan is a critical part of crisis communication, business continuity preparation – and a major step toward resiliency. Hennes Communications can design and conduct cost-effective crisis drills that simulate actual crises, testing your staff’s readiness and ability to respond.
