We are very excited to share the 2018 volume of Critical Mass Magazine: Automating Emergency Notifications.
In this volume, you can learn how to adopt a scenarios-based approach in an effort to launch a complex series of emergency response actions automatically; including delivering emergency procedures to each recipient, summoning assistance from local first responders and establishing remote unified command.
We also dive deep into topics to help make you more successful including guidelines for exercising your notification system, implementing proven success indicators, and maintaining peace of mind through delivering accurate and immediate notifications.
There is much more inside that we would like to share with you. The magazine is available for download below and will start shipping immediately.
We hope the topics presented promote conversation within your organizations to advance your efforts in keeping people safe. Enjoy!
No organization wants to think about the day that an emergency might happen at their facilities, especially an active shooter crisis, but it is something that each organization must prepare. Not only is mass emergency preparation a legal obligation, but most would argue that it is a moral one. You want to keep your people informed and out of harm’s way. If there’s an emergency, people expect to be notified and provided the guidance to remain safe. There are many alerts that we have grown accustomed to receiving such as weather alerts, Amber or Silver Alerts, or even local emergency alerts. So, if there’s an active shooter emergency in the vicinity, people expect to be alerted in a similar fashion.
Severe weather can happen at any time. Depending on the season and your location, weather threats can range from thunderstorms and tornadic activity to hurricanes, Nor’easters, or even a wintry mix. Having emergency communication plans and an automated method of distributing said communications in place helps ensure you and the people you are responsible for are kept safe and informed during severe weather season - no matter which season.
Of all the requirements of the Jeanne Clery Act college and university communities most frequently associate it with the timely warning. As an original part of the 1990 law timely warnings have fundamentally changed how students and employees learn about campus crime in a way that is now firmly enshrined in their cultures as it is what they most frequently see.
