A comprehensive emergency management program is made up of several related pieces: emergency operations plan, crisis management, crisis communications and mass notification. Too often, organizations create a simple tactical response plan, without planning out the program as a whole. This is the equivalent of building a company or department without a business plan.
Creating an emergency management program is not a one-time endeavor that gets put in a binder, put on the shelf and collects dust. It is a living program that must be monitored and updated as the organization changes and as hazards change or are mitigated against.
