Effective Emergency Preparedness Planning

Emergency management officials know that an effective emergency preparedness plan involves more that organizing survivial efforts in the aftermath of a disaster. Finding ways to alert citizens or staff before an emergency happens is one of the most effective ways to minimize life-threatening situations and to help people prepare sooner. Providing reliable ongoing communication after the emergency can help mitigate the effects of the incident.

The proliferation of communication technologies means that citizens and communities have more ways than ever to stay in touch. When an emergency or disaster strikes, that can make the job of crisis communication either easier, or more difficult. It all depends on the toolset you have to work with. A growing number of emergency preparedness plans include the use of multi-channel or multimodal alerting systems like Omnilert.
