Crisis planning is essential for churches and religious facilities, private clubs and fraternal organizations, government and public buildings and any place groups of people gather.
MG Tactical Advantage will work with organizations or facilities to help them prepare to respond well to an emergency and its potential impact. Developing a crisis plan involves a risk assessment, creating a plan to mitigate those risks, and then making decisions in advance about the management of resources and communications procedures. Such planning is a management tool, which can help ensure a timely and effective return to “normal”. Time spent in crisis planning equals time saved when a disaster occurs. Effective crisis planning should lead to timely and effective disaster-relief operations.
The contingency planning process can basically be broken down into three simple questions:
• What is going to happen?
• What are we going to do about it?
• What can we do ahead of time to get prepared?
Allow MG Tactical’s experts to help guide your business or facility through these questions in a systematic way. Crisis planning is most often undertaken when there is a specific threat or hazard; exactly how that threat will actually impact is unknown. Developing scenarios is a good way of thinking through the possible impacts. On the basis of sensible scenarios it is possible to develop a plan that sets out the scale of the response and the resources needed.
