Time and again, post-event reports that follow an emergency drill invariably contain the phrase "communication needs to be improved." Critical decisions are delayed and response coordination suffers.
Businesses, governments and non-profits today are increasingly aware of the need to have an effective communication system in place to coordinate the action of emergency response resources and to alert citizens, staff, students and others of impending threats.
It isn't easy. Few organizations have the budget to equip everyone with the exact same device. That means you need to connect via the method most relevant to reach them, be it voice, text, e-mail and more across a broad range of technologies.
Crisis communication tools from Omnilert help bridge the communication gap between organizations and individuals. Multi-channel or multimodal alerting systems like Amerilert and e2Campus help emergency preparedness managers develop response plans that can reach individuals quickly and accurately.
Local governments, first responders and companies use Amerilert to reach citizens, employees and others for emergency notifications. The Amerilert system can send thousands of simultaneous voice, SMS text and e-mail messages, post to social media and web pages, and integrate with PA systems, digital signs and other methods.
Services like Amerilert uConference™ enable members of an organization to initiate instant private telephone conferences to defined groups. Connect quickly with key stakeholders during time-sensitive situations to review and execute your crisis communications plan.
Crisis communication on campus and in schools has grown increasingly important. e2Campus is an emergency notification system designed for campuses and schools that can communicate important or urgent information to thousands of people at once. It allows schools to reach administrators, teachers, parents and students with critical safety information via text messages, e-mail, voicemails, social media, PA announcements and more.
New technologies continue to emerge that will broaden the spectrum of mass communication tools for better emergency preparedness. Crisis communication tools from Amerilert and e2Campus are designed to help you manage that challenge. Technologies will continue to evolve. And as they do, Omnilert products will be ready to keep your community safe and connected.
