Preparing for Severe Weather
No matter where your organization is located, it is susceptible to the threat of severe weather and other natural disasters. Whether it’s blizzards or hurricanes, earthquakes or wildfires, these events can have major impacts on the day-to-day operations of your organization. Without proper planning and the right tools, natural disasters can put your people at risk and disrupt activities leading to prolonged downtime.
However, mass notification and critical event management tools can help, which is why we’ve created our latest eBook, “Preparing for Severe Weather and Natural Disasters.” This free resource provides information on how to use these tools to deal with severe weather and natural disasters so you can keep your people safe and mitigate issues ahead of time.
Topics covered in this eBook include:
- The cost of being unprepared
- The role of mass notification tools
- What to do before, during, and after an event occurs
- An awareness calendar and glossary
- And more!
Spreading the Word and Managing Events
One of the biggest problems mass notification systems help solve is reaching people wherever they are. A robust mass notification system offers intrusive text and audio alerts that are delivered to on-site and mobile devices so that no matter where someone is or what they are doing they receive the information they need at a moment’s notice. This is particularly helpful during severe weather and natural disaster events which can come on suddenly and require people to take immediate action.
Mass notification systems that also offer critical event management capabilities can have added benefits during severe weather and natural disasters. Virtual collaboration via integration with tools like Microsoft Teams, Webex, and Zoom can quickly gather key stakeholders who can assess the severity of a situation, review damage to property, and address issues with people seeking shelter. Critical event management capabilities also can create a digital version of your emergency response plan that is accessible from any desktop or mobile device so every step gets completed.
