Emergency Exercises

You may feel the last thing you need when when a major incident engulfs your organisation is for the media to arrive on your doorstep. But we simulate just that to test your handling of communications.

Are You Prepared?

We’ve been running emergency exercises for 25 years in Scotland, across the UK…even in Azerbaijan!

You choose the scenario – and give us the date. We’ll pull together a team of experienced newspaper, radio and TV journalists. We’ll hire actors as concerned residents…and camera crews as required. And we make sure simulated social media goes mad. Then when you fire the starting pistol, we’ll chase the story…make hundreds of phone calls…doorstep interviewees…and run riot in a news conference or two.

Why? Because that’s what happens for real – and you need to know that your communications team can take the heat. And your spokespeople can make a bad situation better through authoritative interviews.

Oil producers, chemical engineering plants and port authorities have used us down the years for such exercises. We then simulate newspaper articles, radio reports and TV pieces…as well as a full written report with recommendations.

Emergency Exercises Outline

  • We agree the scale of the exercise in advance
  • Our team will comprise of experienced newspaper, radio and TV journalists, and actors
  • You provide the ‘players’ in the exercise – and outline their level of involvement
  • We then act exactly as the media and social media would
