Which organizations should be involved in communications planning?

All stakeholders, including non-governmental organizations (NGOs), private sector entities, and owners of critical infrastructure, should be involved in formulating communications plans and strategies.

These plans must be thorough, integrated, and interoperable to ensure effective communication across all involved parties during an incident.

From the perspective of emergency managers, involving a broad spectrum of organizations in communications planning enhances the collective ability to share critical information and coordinate response efforts efficiently.

This collaborative approach ensures that communication systems and protocols are universally understood and effectively implemented, facilitating a unified response to emergencies.
