The three C’s of emergency planning and responses

RAYVNNews

Recent events have proven that we need to review many of the lessons that we assumed we had learned and known in the field of emergency preparedness. We have come to live in a world where critical events can strike anywhere, and at any time, placing you in the situation where you are required to deal with crises when least expected. Information is moving faster and you need to respond effectively and promptly as you planned and trained for! To help you along, consider the following three Cs of emergency planning and responses to develop significant standards of preparedness that will enable all interested stakeholders to join their efforts and resources more effectively to face the next critical event!

Coordination

Coordination plays a crucial role in increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of crisis management; it allows you to obtain the big picture of an emergency and reduce uncertainty levels. Coordinating with your stakeholders allows you to act together smoothly, helping to reduce impact.

The lack of good coordination during a critical event affects your response and hinders completing the task. To ensure that your emergency response system is functioning well, It’s advised to send regular test notifications to your team to collect and monitor responses; this brings into view potential coordination issues in your emergency response system.

Communication

Effective communication with resources during a critical event is essential. Choosing your emergency-communication channel during the time of the crisis without prior planning can result in poor or misunderstood communications! Set up your emergency communication plan as early as possible through identifying tools, resources, teams, and strategies to ensure effective actions during emergencies.

Collaboration

How RAYVN support the 3 C's

Coordination

RAYVN is a tool that supports organizations in dealing with critical incidents. The tool makes it possible to quickly mobilize teams, coordinate all actions and tasks, and document the entire event automatically via the incident report generated by the RAYVN platform. This allows you to evaluate task coordination, team performance, and how the situation has been managed. 

Communication

The RAYVN platform sends out notifications on multiple platforms to ensure quick communication with accurate information from the right resource. It allows you to set predefined texts for notifications, including information regarding incidents and users. RAYVN  equips you with the needed techniques for sharing situational awareness to support the rapid decision-making and joint planning to respond under resource constraints and during the ongoing emergency. 

Collaboration

RAYVN enables emergency managers to collaborate with their staff and pull multiple stakeholders (internal and external) together during a crisis to affect quick and informed actions.  RAYVN facilitates prompt collaboration between involved parties, helping you mitigate critical events as fast as possible.
