FORMULATION OF CRISIS MANAGEMENT PLANS
If your business or organization already has a solid collection of Emergency Action Plans in-place, good for you! Should an emergency suddenly occur at your site, your thoughtful preparation and planning will likely result in a safe outcome for your employees, with accompanying property-damage being held to a minimum. Unfortunately, life goes on after the initial emergency has been dealt with, and in the aftermath of a significant event such as a fire, flood, etc., you may be facing a period of prolonged difficulty and uncertainties. Will you be displaced from your current facility? For how long? Will you have to suspend business operations? Realign supply-chains? Make drastic changes to your business model? As was the case with emergency-response planning, those that fail to plan are ultimately planning to fail. At Hoffman Consulting, we set a distinction between initial emergency response efforts, versus the follow-up and potentially sustained actions that need to be implemented following an initial event. These sustained actions constitute the long-term crisis management response. Having developed detailed Crisis Management Plans for both public agencies and private businesses, we have the knowledge and expertise necessary to assist you in the development of a robust framework for crisis management response.
