A newly published report from the Business Continuity Institute and supported by Everbridge, Emergency Communications Report 2015 has demonstrated the need for organizations to invest in an emergency communications plan by revealing that nearly two thirds of respondents (62%) to a global survey had activated their plan during the previous year. Further findings from the report include:
- 14% of respondents reported that they do not have an emergency communications plan.
- Of these which do not have an emergency communications plan, over two-thirds (68%) state they would only create one after a business affecting event.
- Email is the primary method of communication used during an emergency with 83% claiming to use this, while 63% use manual call trees, 55% use emergency communication software, 55% use crisis telephone lines and 53% use website announcements
- Common triggers for activating the emergency communications plan include unplanned IT outages (50%), weather related incidents (49%), power outages (47%), natural disasters (45%) and fire (42%)
