Ensure Safety With Emerency Notification Systems
Early and Complete Information During Incidents Saves Lives and Minimizes Damage
Trouble can come at any moment. From confrontations in the workplace, gun violence at schools, or dangerous weather, being informed protects lives and livelihoods. When combined with advanced surveillance networks, emergency notification systems provide up-to-date warnings and reunification information.
Surveys and reports on recent events ranging from wildfires to tornados show that individuals who received warnings and directives for safest routes fled sooner, maximizing their safety and reducing the strain on first responders.

WHY A DEDICATED SYSTEM?
We live in a connected culture; our news and information are available instantaneously. Why is a dedicated system needed with such open and free-flowing updates on social media and live streaming services?
A paper by Willam V. Jeffrey sums up the needs, stating:
"There are many modalities for crisis period information distribution. Traditional media such as radio and television can provide detailed perspectives but presuppose electricity (at both distribution and reception points), attention of the public, and timely information. Internet news sources are a tremendous source of timely information but require both power and signal supply (at both distribution and reception points), and the reliability of information may be questionable."
Our systems and services furnish you with the technology and guidance to build a reliable network that establishes information, not speculation. A dedicated and official broadcast increases the chances of quick resolution and effective response.
GEOFENCING AND LOCATION MAPPING
Unlike many national or regional alert systems, a private mass alert network gives you the power to send information and receive simple responses to only the people who need it.
Geofencing, a real-time GPS technology that specifies transmission boundaries, is incredibly useful when you need messages to reach a larger geographic area. For example, you may need to notify several school zones during severe weather to evacuate or seek protective shelter and instructions on reuniting afterward.
Location mapping allows you to message recipients by their specific address, neighborhood, or campus. This method is suitable for hyper-local notifications, informing residents of issues in their immediate vicinity, regardless of the technique used - knowing who you are trying to reach and why is vital.
