Crisis Management Planning
Today Crisis Management is an evolving area due to 9/11, Katrina and now the tragedy of Virginia Tech. Every organization in the United States including businesses, schools, and governments, now has the implied or actual responsibility to respond correctly and in a timely manner to crisis events as never before. The public has now seen and heard enough about why established organizations failed in responding properly to disasters not thought possible before the above events.
We now need to take the elementary steps of creating a Crisis Management Plan for these natural, man made, and technical events. Much like the fire drills we have all participated in which included personal accountability plans that consisted of everyone meeting at an assigned location to have our names read from a clip board, today technology has provided additional capabilities but they have not totally eliminated the old stand buys of Sirens and Clip Boards.
