Crisis Management Plans

“The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word ‘crisis.’ One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger–but recognize the opportunity.”

Every crisis situation is unique and can have a negative impact on a company’s short and long-term reputation, financial performance, and overall longevity. Therefore, it is critical that a crisis management response framework be in place long before a crisis occurs. An effective Crisis Management Plan can result in:

  • Accelerated resolution of a crisis

  • Minimized negative profile or public image

  • Reduced business interruption

  • Enhanced public image

  • Unaffected financial performance

We understand the difficulty mentioning the subject of an active shooter and active threat. HELP Paradigm understands. But it’s for that very reason — the emotional aspect of this subject — that we have made it our business to help our clients protect themselves if there is ever a need. Don’t let fear stop you from becoming safer.

HELP Paradigm is committed to providing communities and organizations the professional support they seek in developing an integrated plan to prepare for active shooter and active threat events. Our philosophy is that an effective active shooter and active threat program must involve everyone in order to be successful.

Our systematic approach recommends engagement with varied stakeholders, such as religious and community leaders, law enforcement, universities, hospitals, fire, education institutions, and emergency medical services. Together these individuals can present a unified strategy to foster a culture of preparedness with the goal of preventing active threat events, reducing overall response time, and facilitating a comprehensive recovery effort. Our expertise in developing active threat-related plans, trainings, and exercises in compliance with the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) is what sets us apart from others.
