In an emergency, it’s critical to deliver the right message to the right people at the right time.  Equally important, however, is reaching your audience to get your alert noticed and acted upon, which can often be challenging in the modern age of information overload.  Join Mass Notification System (MNS) experts to learn how to best reach people in an emergency. The webinar explores how to communicate with clear, concise and redundant messaging, reviews intelligibility, examines system design, evaluates how today’s integrated technologies can help organizations distribute information quickly and accurately, and discusses best practices with real world examples.

In this webinar, Emergency Communications:  Hearing Your Message Loud and Clear, learn from University of Central Florida’s Warning and Communications Coordinator and Eaton’s Product Marketing Manager who will cover the following topics:

  • Emergency communications and types of technologies
  • Clear and concise messaging
  • Communicating in an environment of information overload
  • Intelligibility & speaker placement best practices
  • Evaluating effective system integration & design
  • Mass notification best practices

After the presentation, there will be a 15 minute Q & A.
