WASHINGTON, D.C.—Xenophon Strategies has created an online kit to assist families create their own crisis communications plans for use during city evacuations, natural disasters, and family emergencies. Home security experts have recommended that families have such plans in place.
“Like businesses, families can build confidence by following certain principles, crafting a plan and practicing it. Confidence grows when people know there are specific steps they can take, and when they become familiar with those actions,” said David Fuscus, president of Xenophon. “We hope FAMCom will help families get in touch when it may matter most.”
The website, at family.crisissupport.com, helps families: identify potential crises and factors affecting communications; develop convenient cards that list family members’ contact information; and practice the plan.
