  • Government Entities

  • In addition to first responders, all government agencies have a responsibility to alert their constituents during a crisis – informing them of any event that may potentially impact public safety within their respective communities. Government entities also have a general duty to protect their employees during a crisis, so they can save lives and maintain operations.

Maintaining Uninterrupted
Operations and Services

Government agencies must cope with a broad range of potential threats to the public, including terrorism, floods, escaped prisoners, wildfires, and infectious diseases involves a lot more than issuing emergency notifications to employees and communities. Rapidly launching an effective response by collaborating with your internal team, other agencies, private sector organizations, and the media, are all crucial for success.

Challenges

The manner in which you and your team respond to a crisis has a profound effect on the outcome—on the lives of your people and the wellbeing of your property. Additional consequences of failure can include the destruction of public and private property, disruption of public services, and a loss of trust in your agency's ability to execute and protect. Preparing for potentially disastrous events in the public sphere cannot be left to an ad hoc management approach. It demands the use of a thorough and purposeful emergency notification system that removes the likelihood of human error while automating a rapid, effective response.

  • Mitigate Your Environmental Exposures

    Government agencies have both compliance and regulatory requirements, as well as a general duty to provide public safety and a safe working environment. An emergency notification system and preparedness program help protect from and inform people of potential threats. Whether it be severe weather alerts sent to employees or mandated notifications sent to your surrounding community, you can automatically initiate Omnimodal Notifications using your specific, predefined Scenarios in an effort to protect people and property.

  • Be Prepared for Community and Workplace Violence

    You can’t always predict or prevent threats and violent acts made by members of your community or by employees in the office, but you can plan to limit the impact. Government agencies have an increased obligation to public safety and a general duty to provide a safe working environment for their employees. By initiating Omnimodal Notifications that include associated procedures, you can be better prepared and limit the potential impact for your constituents and employees.

  • Resolve Infrastructure Outages & Interruptions

    Power and network outages and technical failures can all hinder the ability to continue conducting government operations. When it comes to mission-critical applications, downtime can impact the fulfillment of obligations negatively. You can quickly resolve these threats to your infrastructure by automatically connecting your systems to your emergency notification system. Your team will gain valuable time by receiving immediate emergency alerts when your systems go amiss.
