Are Your Emergency Messages Reaching The Right People?
Here are the pros and cons of some of the more popular mass
notification solutions available today, as well as suggestions
on how to make your emergency alert program more effective.
When an emergency happens, campus officials must be able to quickly disseminate
critical information so their community members can take appropriate
actions to protect themselves and the individuals in their care. How a person
responds can vary, depending on their situation and location. They might need
to shelter in place, lock down, evacuate or some other action.
However, before anyone can respond to an alert, they must first be able to
see, hear or read the announcement. Unfortunately, no one type of technology
can reach everyone in a campus community.
