Bobsville’s Crisis Communication Plan Updates: Cultural and Environmental Disasters

Without proper planning, it is most likely that failure is the ultimate result. Frequent updates made to a crisis communication plan are crucial to meet the dynamic needs and future expectations. Cultural hazards are known behaviours that expose residents of a particular neighbourhood to various types of health hazards. Environmental disasters are, in most cases, human-induced crises affecting the natural environment. In this essay, Bobsville’s Crisis Communication Plan is updated based on the top human-caused hazard (Cow Chip Throwing Festivals).

Website

The Website is today a most fundamental means of mass communication, especially during disaster management. In the case of Bobsville, the Communications team, with the leading of the Mayor, can structure a website informing the public about the risk of burning Cow Chip and response procedures in case there is a fire outbreak. Additionally, the platform shall be used as a link between the area residents and the emergency response team in charge. Guidelines on safe activities that can be conducted during the Cow Chip Throw festivals will also be provided.

Social Media

When dealing with cultural hazards and environmental disasters, social media platforms have proven remarkable. For instance, the town’s Mayor and the Sheriff department can monitor the number of people expected at the festival. Facebook, WhatsApp, and Twitter can raise awareness on the proper disposal of waste Cow Chips to avoid unnecessary fires and emission of toxic chemicals. Civilians can share essential information available on Bobsville’s social media handles to mitigate cultural and environmental disasters. Further, with the help of other stakeholders, the town’s communication team can consider paying for ads and boosted posts to access a larger audience.

Traditional Media

Traditional media are most helpful when digital communication mediums are unavailable. At Bobsville, the town’s main radio station and the sub-control center at Bunny’s Tower can effectively communicate the guidelines for dealing with cultural hazards, culminating in environmental disasters. Ideally, information regarding victims exposed to the toxic chemicals released by Cow Chips can be reiterated to keep the public updated. There may also be serious injuries resulting from accidents during the festivals. Traditional media can be an apt medium for reaching the emergency response team.
