Emergency Exercises

You may feel the last thing you need when a major incident engulfs your organisation is for the media to arrive.

We simulate that exact scenario to test your handling of communications.

Are You Prepared?

From the north-east of Scotland to Azerbaijan, we’ve been running emergency exercises since 1990.

You choose the scenario and give us the date.

We’ll pull together a team of experienced print and broadcast journalists.

We’ll make sure simulated social media goes mad.

Then when you fire the starting pistol, we’ll chase the story.

We’ll make dozens of phone calls, send emails, doorstep interviewees on site – and cause editorial havoc in a news conference.

Why? Because that’s what happens for real.

And you need to know that your communications team can take the heat.

Your spokespeople can make a bad situation better through excellent media interviews, assertive phone calls and well-written responses.

Oil producers, chemical engineering plants and port authorities have used us down the years for such exercises.

We’ll simulate newspaper articles, radio reports and TV pieces.

And we’ll follow up with a full written report with recommendations.
