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.
