New Year's Goals for Emergency Communication

Happy New Year Omnilerters!


The new year is upon us and we hope you take a moment to reflect upon your successes last year.


For most people, this week is the official launch of many New Years resolutions.   Exercise more, eat a healthier diet, lose the 10 lbs accumulated during the holiday season, spend more time with family, and so on.  


Have you had a chance to consider your emergency communications goals?


If you are running short on possible resolutions or goals to achieve this year, may we humbly suggest the following emergency communication-related items:


  • Review, or create an Emergency Action Plan.
  • Review and test your Emergency Notification System (ENS ) operability and procedures.
  • Train your ENS administrators.
  • Work to increase the adoption rate for the ENS on your campus or business.
  • Incorporate more Social Media channels for alerts involving the public.
  • Maintain an open line of communication with your ENS vendor.
  • Avoid message saturation by sending fewer non-critical messages.
  • Pre-plan communication scenarios for possible events.
  • Increase your ENS coverage by utilizing the multiple-modality interfaces available to you.


We wish everyone a safe and happy 2015!
