However, compared to previous Campus Safety Emergency Notification studies, fewer are doing so than before. Are some campuses not making alert systems a high enough priority?
Relying on only one type of system will limit the reach of your emergency messages.
Intelligibility is a measure of how easy it is to understand a voice message.
CS’ latest survey finds that overall demand for emergency notification solutions has increased to 57%, compared to 51% in 2017
Here’s how your campus can overcome the challenges of intelligibility so that your emergency messages will be clear.
Organizations that back up their mobile phone emergency messages with voice notification stand a much greater chance of reaching everyone during a crisis.
Students, teachers and staff members must be able to hear and understand emergency messages broadcast on public address systems so they can respond effectively.
Institutions cannot afford to have an emergency notification system that takes minutes to verify an emergency, draft a message, seek approval and/or send the alert. To address this challenge, Florida State University, in conjunction with Siemens, has developed a centralized activation portal for its FSU ALERT emergency notification system.
Training, planning, policies, coordination with stakeholders ensure messages reach everyone.
