Abstract
Tło badań. Zarządzanie kryzysowe wymaga elastyczności i dostosowywania się do dynamicznie zmieniających się warunków. Wysokie wymagania i standardy w tym zakresie zależą komunikacji poziomej i pionowej, które są jednym z głównych czynników koordynowania działań wielu niezależnych organizacji.
Cel badań. W pracy podjęto próbę określenia czynników wpływających na skuteczne komunikowanie się w odniesieniu do koordynowania działań, a także rolę tych procesów w zarządzaniu lokalnymi sieciami zarządzania kryzysowego.
Metodyka. W artykule przedstawiono wyniki badań teoretycznych i empirycznych. Badania przeprowadzono w ramach projektu badawczego "Koordynacja, komunikacja i zaufanie jako czynników napędzających efektywną współpracę między organizacjami w systemie zarządzania bezpieczeństwem publicznym" (DEC-2012/07/D/HS4/00537).
Kluczowe wnioski. Rezultatem przeprowadzonych badań jest identyfikacja roli komunikowania się w koordynowaniu działań w sieciach zarządzania kryzysowego na poziomie lokalnym. (abstrakt oryginalny)

Background. Emergency management requires flexibility and adaptation to dynamic and changing circumstances. The urgent requirements and high standards of responsiveness in terms of emergency management depend on horizontal and vertical communication in that these are one of the main factors associated with the appropriate coordination of many essentially independent organisations.
Research aims. The paper attempts to identify the determinants of effective communication, particularly in regard to close coordination, as well as the role played by these processes in the management of local emergency networks.
Method. This work consists of a theory-based empirical study. It is qualitative in nature and the research method is based on both desk research and field research. The research was conducted as part of a research project entitled "Coordination, communication and trust as factors driving effective inter-organisational collaboration in the public safety management system" (DEC-2012/07/D/HS4/00537).
Key findings. As a result, the new role of communication as a factor associated with the appropriate coordination in local emergency networks is identified. (original abstract)
