Better Communications in Crisis Communication

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Crisis communication plans were established after the 9/11 attacks and Katrina disaster to help minimize risk factors that come when a disaster occurs. The need of disseminating information accurately and quickly to the public is essential during crisis. The goal of the study is to develop an effective formula for information dissemination to the public during crisis communication. The study develops a crisis communication formula based on the earlier theories of diffusion of information and diffusion of innovation in establishing better communication plans during natural or manmade crisis. The study suggests that a better dissemination of information during crisis can occur when the right innovation or technology is being used toward the right medium choice such as opinion leaders to relay information to the public who vitally depends on the given information. The study proposed a formula aiming toward simplicity. The simpler the message is the more dissemination it gets. The study suggests that natural crisis and man-made crisis create different challenges in dissemination of information.
