About the crisis planning template

The crisis plan template is designed to capture in one place all the important information you will need during and immediately after a crisis. Don’t be daunted by its length – it provides a clear, step-by-step format to work through.

Fill out each section to make sure you're prepared for any crisis event or disaster that might occur.

The first half of the document allows you to fill in and consolidate important information about your business, including your finances, bills, debts, assets and insurance, as well as records of your staff, suppliers and important clients.

The second half of the document is your risk management and crisis response plan:

  • Use the template to list possible risks to your business and describe how you can prevent or minimise the impact on your business.
  • Use the checklists when responding to a crisis event so you can stay calm and be sure you don't miss anything vital.
