It’s not a question you hear every day, is it? It’s one that is understood in few circles but when it is part of a very strict protocol that you have to follow, the ability to respond quickly is vital.
Operation London Bridge is the code name given to a set of protocols that local government and councils have to enact at the time of the Queen’s passing. There are others too – Operation Forth Bridge indicates the death of Prince Philip and Menai Bridge, that of Prince Charles.
Every website connected to local government and councils must immediately post notification of the occasion on the homepage of their website with details such as the date of birth and death, a photo and any messages they would like to convey. This must be done immediately, no matter what the time of day.
At Somerset Web Services we design, build and support many local councils and parish councils websites and in order to make this as easy as possible for them, we have created a special plugin for those WordPress websites. The plugin will immediately post a pop-up on the homepage with the relevant information. All you have to do is press publish and it is live.
If you are one of those organisations that need to respond swiftly to Operation London Bridge and you have a WordPress website, give us a call and will be able to help you with a quick solution to meeting your obligations in a timely and sensitive way.
