Learn how to respond effectively to incidents you have never thought would require a crisis response – or never thought of in the first place. In this session, you’ll look at how a misplaced T-Rex caused a crisis no one imagined at the Wyoming Military Department and how having a mini-response plan may have helped in that situation.
Dive in and hear ideas to tailor mini-response plans for a “not a crisis” in your world, including:
  • Going home with a workable crisis response plan for an unexpected “not a crisis”
  • Taking away the tools and knowledge to brainstorm various levels of crisis response before they may be needed
  • Padding your current crisis communication plan with additional tools to make a crisis response – even one you never imagined– less stressful for you and your agency
