Media Management & Communications

When a crisis unfolds, most media and communications team members have access to very little information or a structured way to respond to incoming enquiries. The pressure exerted by external media agencies and the press in general can be overwhelming. They expect regular updates and will stop at nothing to access the latest information from the organisation affected.

Be Prepared to Handle Media in Any Crisis Scenario

Each department of the organisation should conduct a risk analysis to determine which incidents could harm the business most and importantly, the reputational impact of one being handled poorly. Communications strategies form an integral part of a crisis management plan and the media team’s role in plans, checklists and procedures should reflect this. 

In most cases, the media will receive the initial information relating to the incident as fast as you do. When it comes down to the finer detail, this may be available to the organisation sooner from people on the ground, staff and members of the emergency services. It is important that this is combined with tried and tested procedures to ensure a consistent, appropriate media response.
