Emergencies can happen everywhere – from the manufacturing floor to the campus quad. It’s so important to have a reliable and robust mass notification solution to provide you and your people effective and reliable communication before, during, and after an emergency.
Automating emergency notification has been a big topic of conversation in the life safety industry for a while now. A few years ago, Omnilert launched Scenarios®. Scenarios affords organizations the opportunity to align, capture, and immediately initiate their emergency response plan’s predefined series of unique actions. Thus simplifying the response process, reducing the human input to only a few clicks. Our newest innovation, Scenarios Triggers™, takes that idea one step further by allowing you to initiate response actions automatically.
How can you reduce that critical period of time - from recognizing an actionable incident to initiating a comprehensive set of response actions? How can you ensure that the right people receive the right information in a matter of minutes - or even seconds? Automation. In this article, published in the most recent Critical Mass Magazine, we explain how adopting an automated, scenario-based approach can help improve the efficiency of your response plans.
In this Q&A, originally published in the 2018 Critical Mass Magazine, Chief Peter Carey discusses how Buffalo State College coordinates emergency preparedness, notification, and response throughout the entire campus community. Carey is Campus Safety Magazine’s 2017 Campus Safety Director of the Year for Higher Education.
We are very excited to share the 2018 volume of Critical Mass Magazine: Automating Emergency Notifications.
We hope emergencies never happen. With the increasing instances of violence in the workplace, environmental disasters, and terrorism, corporations are being challenged to minimize the associated impacts to operations and lives. Unfortunately, the reality is they will arise at any time. Preparing for potentially disastrous events cannot be left to an ad hoc management approach to risk. The question is how can organizations mitigate risk when they do arise?
