Safety preparation at your organization goes far beyond simply having an emergency notification system (ENS). You need to ensure that you’ve prepared your ENS for any crisis situation that might impact your organization. On top of that, each individual — whether it be your critical communications team, staff and employees, students, or visitors — must understand how and why they will be receiving alerts and what to do with the guidance they receive. Ensuring your staff and employees are confident in their knowledge and abilities is a key part of emergency preparation.
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.
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.
Many of us can still remember the shock and horror that went through our bodies when we heard about the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999. While the Columbine attack was almost 20 years ago, the mass shooting at the Sandy school in Connecticut, which killed 20 6- and 7-year-old students and six adults, just passed its five-year mark in December.

Success in organizational or campus safety is contingent upon careful planning and collaboration with other business units. The best outcomes occur when an emergency manager, operations manager, safety director, or the like, assembles a team to assist with testing and implementing their solution. When you’re working with hundreds, or even thousands, of people on a large campus the question comes down to how can you make sure you’re successfully reaching every person?
