Emergency mass notification system (EMNS) needs vary across organizations. Mass notification systems can range from simple to elaborate, and it’s easy to fixate on specific services or products when reviewing the different offerings. Keep the big picture in mind, and always come back to your end goal. What are you looking to achieve with your emergency mass notification system? In many cases the answer is comprehensive notification coverage.
Comprehensive notification coverage generally requires a variety of alerting methods to overcome obstacles that may prevent occupants, faculty, staff, or visitors from receiving an emergency alert.
Where are occupants located when the emergency occurs?
Do they have access to a computer or mobile device (and is it powered on)?
Are they in an area where they can see or hear the alert?
All of these are potential obstacles that can prevent your community from receiving an emergency alert.
Threats can originate from people or weather, so when an emergency occurs, every second counts. An emergency mass notification system that integrates with your existing infrastructure can help save lives. Global CTI can help guide you to what other organizations like yours have done to strengthen their emergency operations plan.
