The answer is yes. Every organization is required to have a crisis communications & action plan. The first minute of an emergency is the most important. There is no second chance to get the first minute right. That is why it is essential to plan and prepare in advance and be ready to execute your communications plan for any and all emergency situations.
We all strive for perfection. It’s human nature. In almost all cases, perfection is impossible. However, being precise is very possible. In the case of sending an emergency notification to your organization, precision is critical. You want your emergency notification to be as clear and concise as possible. When an emergency situation does happen, you need to ensure that the correct people are reached in as many ways as possible.
