    This research is based on the operative methods for crisis management in public organizations. Crisis is a necessary evil, a sine quo non. In the process to satisfy needs, people and organizations engage in different activities and as a result, crisis emerges. These crises that emerged posed a lot of problems to the society. The objective of this research was to investigate the cause of crises and examine the ways in which crises can be avoided. This paper encourages the use of a macroeconomic approach while analyzing the conditions that can generate a crisis. The management within the public sector has a determinant role. This role relates to increasing the efficiency in which the public funds are being used as well as increasing the performance within the public sector. The article will therefore present the importance of the objective methods that a public organization can use when a crisis management situation occurs. This paper aims to conclude that there are several ways in which the management within the public sector can be improved, in case a crisis occurs. The decision to overcome the crisis can be used either together or separate and the final decision is left with the manager. The research recommends that these crises should be carried out through public relations enlightenment programs, using the operative methods, which will be discussed.
