Develop a Crisis Communications Plan

Begin to create a Crisis Communications Plan for the fictional town of Bobsville. Use the chapter “Developing a Crisis Communications Plan” provided in the textbook and Appendix A as a guide. Use the [description of Bobsville] for existing information, and create any details necessary to create your plan that is not already in the description.

Your initial Crisis Communication Plan should be ~1-2 pages and have:

– Purpose and Objectives
– Key publics/stakeholders
– Enabling
– Functional
– Normative
– Diffused
– System for Notifying key publics
– Crisis Communication Team members
– Media Spokespersons
– List of Emergency Personnel & Local Officials

– Crisis Communications Control Center
– Equipment & Supplies

As part of integrating with Bobsville’s Crisis Management Plan/Emergency Operations Plan begun in EDMG220 that you have been developing in each course, create a 1 page maximum ESF7 Logistical Resource Support annex.

Use the FEMA Comprehensive Preparedness Guide pages 3-15 through 3-18, and Appendix C-19, IS-807, as well as published ESF7 examples found online to inform your annex. Here are some supplemental materials on the Emergency Support Functions:
