Texas University Implements Emergency Notification System

MIR3 recently announced that Texas Southern University (TSU) has awarded the company a contract to be the official emergency notification platform for its campus located in Houston.

MIR3’s solution leverages multi-modal notification approach, which enables simultaneous use of several types of communication devices to alert and instruct employees, first-responders, students, and customers during an emergency.

Multi-modal communication is particularly important within a student population. Recent events involving on-campus tragedies make it a necessity for schools nationwide to be able to communicate with students, parents and faculty immediately -- alerting them of dangerous situations or changes in procedure at a moment’s notice.

MIR3’s inCampusAlert enables organizations to reach thousands of contacts in seconds with time-critical information in the event of an emergency. Messages are delivered via cellular and landline phones, SMS devices, e-mail, fax and pagers.

Notifications can be sent via the Internet, dual-tone multi-frequency,(DTMF) phones, e-mail or by calling MIR3’s 24/7/365 support center. MIR3’s notification capabilities are also used for routine high-volume messaging and all-purpose broadcasting, such as administrative notices to employees, messages for coordinating staffing and schedules or delivering important, auditable information to customers.

Additionally, with the masses who own cellular telephones, MIR3’s system allows for true two-way text messaging, real-time reports and integrated incident management -- critical features when an organization needs to quickly mobilize first-responders and officials during crises.
