In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, college administrators, campus safety directors, and CTOs are invited to attend a free one-hour webinar on Wednesday, November 14th, 2012 at 1:00 PM eastern entitled “Unifying Existing Communication Channels Into a One-Click ENS.” Dr. Carolyn Lightfoot, Chief Technology Officer for Lee College in Baytown, Texas, is all too familiar with disastrous hurricanes. Dr. Lightfoot will discuss lessons learned and best practices in implementing emergency messaging systems to accommodate the growing diversity of communication options. Dr. Lightfoot will answer audience questions at the end of the seminar.
“With such a range of alerting technologies now available, it seems like a daunting task to bring them all together,” said Dr. Lightfoot. “However, the need to reduce complexity and response time in an emergency makes this an important campus security initiative.”
During an emergency such as a hurricane, many schools struggle with the best ways to keep an entire campus community informed, wherever they are, throughout all stages of the crisis. The breadth of communication options is both an aid and a hindrance in the development of emergency alert strategies. While the growing number of choices is a benefit, the diversity of technologies and form factors make it difficult to reach the largest number of people possible.
This free online seminar is sponsored by e2Campus, the leading provider of unified mass notification systems for sending time-sensitive information to large groups of people.
