Communication Tree


  • This is an expanded version of a phone tree. One or a few people at the top can start the communication process, contacting a list of people who each contact a list of other people, either by phone, e-mail, pager, or other designated means. In this way, information can reach a large number of people in a short time.

  • Make sure there is redundancy built into your tree, in case some key people cannot be reached.

  • You can create your own communication tree, as seen below, or find a ready-to-use template on line. To see the communication tree (below) as a word-document to edit for your own use, click here
