Nuclear and energy crisis management

Nuclear & Energy Communication Experts.

In today’s post-Fukushima world, energy—particularly nuclear energy—is on everyone’s mind. Whether corrosion in a reactor head, tritium in a local water source or an unscheduled outage, over 50 percent of the nation’s commercially owned and operated nuclear plants and numerous utilities rely on Wixted & Company to provide communication strategy, counsel and writing, communication training, drilling, mock media and hands-on crisis management for their joint information center (JIC) teams, spokespersons and corporate leadership.

Specialized Nuclear Communication Offerings.

Our nuclear and drilling exercises have been called “frighteningly realistic,” as they place teams in real-life practice scenarios and teach them to communicate effectively, respond to rumors and build trust with key stakeholders—even in the face of a rate hike, unscheduled shutdown, equipment failure or hostile action-based crisis. Participants learn to quickly navigate the communications and operational, emotional and financial demands required to manage issues in the energy field.

Wixted & Company’s intimate understanding of this intensely regulated industry uniquely qualifies us to deliver tailored communication strategy, counsel and writing, which may include an issues management plan, a news release and talking points for a specific incident, or a crisis communication plan. These documents are essential to have at the ready in case the unexpected occurs. Our nuclear and energy team has years of experience in dealing with the technical communication aspects that make energy communications unique, and a successful track record of helping companies prepare for venues such as public hearings and NRC-evaluated exercises.
