Communication is central to every aspect of managing a crisis.
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.
