Emergency communications are complex and require sophisticated tools to generate effective results.
Most campuses know they need solutions that help them communicate critical information during an emergency. That’s why many have turned to mass notification tools to help spread the word quickly during a crisis. However, not all tools are created equal, and without a thorough strategy, campuses may discover there are gaps that impede their ability to share messages with everyone. This can unintentionally put people in harm’s way.
When considering what works and what doesn’t for mass notification, it’s important to keep in mind that no two campuses are the same. These are general guidelines for what each campus should strive for, but there are nuances that campus leaders will need to consider given the size of their facilities and population.
