Dennis Winkler has worked with petrochemical industry members on strategies and plans to roll out worst-case-scenarios for communities. Plans included a unique method of communicating in town hall-styled sessions that improved one-on-one communication and prevented community outrage about toxic releases.
More than 92% of the town hall participants said industry’s emergency planning and preparedness for worst case scenarios increased community safety.
According to the Institute of Crisis Management, 75% of all organizational crises arise from un-addressed issues.
