Emergencies, crises and catastrophes don’t announce themselves. They occur unexpectedly. Nevertheless, they must be handled professionally, efficiently and as quickly as possible.
By implementing a system for emergency and crisis management it is possible to manage tasks under extraordinary circumstances and to maintain core processes.
In order to take a corporate’s objectives into account it is necessary to determine organization, competences, responsibilities and tasks for crisis management in relevant documents.
A temporary organizational form will be activated in order to focus on the essential resources in a specific crisis situation. Furthermore, it defines additional responsibilities and competences and enables decisions in conformation with particular circumstances.
Organizational structure and process organization are regulated in a directive by the ministry of the interior. In order to facilitate communication between disaster control authorities and operations management it is advisable that the organization follows the official model provided for in the directive.
