What are Your Tips for Writing a Crisis Communications Plan?

This week, we are asking a big question, about a project with big responsibilities, and diverse opinions on how to do it effectively. Writing a crisis communications plan is often put off for years because companies do not have the time or the bench strength to do it. Too many organizations opt out, or take the easy way out by downloading a generic crisis plan off the internet. They are dangerous because they are not thorough, they are not unique, and they don’t address the vulnerabilities that your organization faces. So, how do you get started? Who do you hire? Do you schedule a few days worth of a public relations writing retreat or do you block out a week? How do you assemble your team?

We would love to hear your thoughts this week. Comment here and on our social media pages to join the discussion. Your answers may be featured in our follow-up video!
