Preparing for a crisis: useful tools
We have frequently discussed the importance of a well-developed crisis manual, but in addition to this ‘manual for a crisis’ there are other tools that should be examined and further developed upfront.
Save time and work during the crisis!
During a crisis time is a rare commodity and there is plenty of work to do. By detailing a number of tools beforehand you can save a lot of time and energy.
Food Security offers tools that you can elaborate or use as such to better manage the crisis.
The 3 tips!
Develop a number of tools beforehand
During a crisis you need to have a ‘suitcase’ with useful documents that you can rely on, for example, in the field of communication.
Some of the actual facts need to be adapted. If you have standard letters, logos, product photos, basic messages, training and advice for various crisis scenarios, you can quickly supplement the documents and use them for the appropriate stakeholder.
Save time and energy!
Collect correct and complete information upfront
It’s important that you can quickly reach the various stakeholders, so you need to have the correct contact information.
Particularly contact information that makes all the difference, so, where you can reach people outside office hours, at night and during weekends.
Use lists that we update for you
Food Security has drawn up a number of lists for you that we check annually.
In the distribution list you find 24/7 contact details of the largest Belgian distributors, so you can inform them about, for example, a product recall.
The media list also has the data of various media groups, (newspapers, radio & TV).
Food Security can help you by:
- Supplying a standard ‘Manual Crisis manual’.
- Further developing a number of concrete tools in an intensive workshop.
- Offering up to date contact lists.
