From the 2011 EDUCAUSE Conference, Omnilert announced West Texas A&M University as the next “America’s Safe Campus.” The video case study uncovers why WTAMU was chosen.
They have established “360 safety communications” so the school can both receive safety information from the entire community as well as push vital information out to the community. The best practices video series called “America’s Safe Campuses” is underwritten by e2Campus, the leading provider of interactive emergency notification systems and two-way safety communications for education.
“West Texas A&M University is truly honored to receive this safety recognition,” explained Shawn Burns, Chief of Police at WTAMU. “Many departments on our campus pulled together to create and implement our comprehensive emergency communications system which allows everyone; students, faculty, staff, and visitors to have an active role in identifying and responding to emergencies at West Texas A&M University. While we enjoy a low crime rate on campus, we are constantly seeking opportunities to improve communication with our campus community.”
The free, educational, peer-presented case study videos spotlight the best practices in campus safety communications and emergency notification. By showcasing what methods and policies campuses employ, the videos show first-hand how to increase campus safety and communication.
