Crisis Communication

What is a PR Crisis?

A PR Crisis is when an organisation or person receives publicity that is negative, humiliating, or harmful. The consequences of a PR crisis are serious.

What is Crisis communication in PR?

Crisis communication is a sub-speciality of the public relations industry designed to protect and defend an individual, company, or organisation that faces a public challenge of its reputation. The word “crisis” should be reserved for significant events that require close management and attention.

What is Crisis Response in PR?

The crisis response is what management does and says after the impacts of the crisis. Public relations play a critical role in the response to the crisis by helping to develop messages sent to different audiences.

The role of PR in Crisis Management

Crisis management is the function of communication management used to convey relevant facts and data to the general public and particular audiences during a crisis situation to avoid or mitigate negative advertising that could negatively affect the company’s performance. Managing the crisis includes identifying a situation, planning a crisis response, and coping with and overcoming the crisis. PR Specialists are experienced in handling Crisis Management, and therefore paramount to the mitigation of the short- and long-term effects of a PR Crisis.
