While all companies have detailed Emergency Response Plans and processes for dealing with a potential crisis, few have the specialized crisis communications skills needed to be fully prepared to deal with media, the public, affected stakeholders, First Nations and potential opponents in an emergency.
A Specialized Response
Concentric Public Affairs can fill those gaps for your organization and help you protect your reputation in times of crisis.
As some of the most experienced professionals in crisis communications and emergency response, our team is well versed in emergency management planning and processes. We understand the Incident Command System and know how to seamlessly integrate public relations into the Incident Command structure during an emergency.
Whether it’s a potentially life-threatening hazardous material spill, large train derailment, well-site incident, or major pipeline rupture (oil or gas), Concentric has experience in responding to – and better still, minimizing the negative impacts of a wide-range of worse-case or critical circumstances.

Live Crisis Scenarios
Nothing prepares your team for a crisis better than practicing for the unexpected.

We record each live scenario – much like media or your opponents would – and live stream it to back to the training room for group discussion and feedback.
Online Stakeholder and Crisis Communications Platform
Concentric has developed a map-based stakeholder engagement online platform to manage all critical stakeholder contacts, track stakeholder contacts and provide a central hub to manage stakeholder engagement and crisis communications.
If you would like to explore this option, the map-based interface would be based on your company’s main operations areas, mapping out operations and identifying key stakeholders, media and local employees/contractors that could be impacted by or involved in responding to an incident. Our platform is web-based and accessible on any device.
