Managing Crisis Communication

During a crisis, the normal channels of communication, such as mobile networks often become overloaded. Having a back-up service that is resilient is vital to ensure efficient, speedy communication for all your stakeholders and partners.

Essentials of Crisis Communication

Crisis communication solutions should include a dedicated app or specialist crisis communication software, particularly if they incorporate multiple options such as internet-based information, text messaging and voice calls, to circumvent any disruption to normal communication channels.

Deploying Crisis Communications

Crisis communication plans need to be activated as soon as the situation occurs. The ‘golden hour’ of the first sixty minutes of a crisis has been long superceded by the ‘golden five minutes’. Act when it’s needed the most.

Remember to:

  • Keep it short and simple
  • Make sure your statements, messages and press releases are logical and clear. Consider splitting any complicated actions into a series of short instructions that can be sent over time to avoid information overload.

Carry out training

  • By running through your crisis communication strategy in a test scenario, you can easily identify any inaccurate, mistimed, or unclear messaging.
  • Ensure data is accurate and up to date
  • Try to include e-mail addresses, social media accounts and any alternative phone numbers, as gathering as much data as possible in advance means you can reach as many people as possible in the event of a crisis.

Know your audience

  • No two crises are ever the same. Your communications plan needs to cover messaging for all kinds of situations. Sometimes you only need to alert a small group of people, and other times you have hundreds of people to inform, usually with different messages via multiple channels. As such you should also divide your recipients into target groups, so they receive the right message for the relevant situation that affects them.

Crisis Communications: Getting the Message Right When It Matters

When a crisis occurs, it is important that your messaging strategy and crisis communications are as clear and concise as possible. This not only conveys an image of being “in control” of the situation, but timely messaging can also help with incident response and better management of critical situations. In the long run, organisations can protect their corporate reputation by proactively dealing with emergencies and a comprehensive crisis communication plan plays a major role in successful outcomes.

Communicating during a Crisis:

Security and Liability

You don’t want your crisis communication tool to fail just when you need it most. Using specialist software ensures availability and service level agreements that meet the demands of your organisation. During a crisis, it is vital that teams can communicate in a dedicated, safe environment with high data protection and security standards.

Management and Co-Operation

When it comes to crisis communications, structure and consistency are key. A well planned, well-tested plan means responders can manage individual tasks and activities efficiently and effectively.  The plan can also cover templates and pre-approved responses to have a consistent, clear message to those affected, media and stakeholders. The ability to assign tasks to members of the crisis response team ensures that the plan is put into action quickly and progress/co-operation can be checked and monitored.

Save the Day with an Effective Communication Plan

In today’s world of instant social media backlashes, intensive media scrutiny and heightened public campaigning, corporations need to deal with crisis situations quickly and effectively. F24 supports organisations to implement, manage and co-ordinate key tasks during a crisis in a professional, co-ordinated manner.
