Seminar Topic and Description:


Adapting Your Emergency Communication Plan Post-COVID-19 Using Mass Notification


Reaching the right people with the right messages during an emergency has become particularly challenging during the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizations have had to shut down, have people work remote, or operate at a reduced capacity. With changing schedules and expectations, it can be difficult to know who is working within facilities and who is working from home. This becomes critical if an emergency occurs that impacts people’s safety.

You can’t afford for someone to miss a message when lives are on the line. A mass notification system can help you reach all of your people by placing them into groups so everyone gets notified during an emergency. Using technology you already have in place you can create a flexible system that can adapt to evolving plans. This can be used to send health and safety updates, schedule changes, reopening notices and more to ensure your organization is doing everything it can to keep people out of harm’s way and avoid further disruptions. Attendees for this webinar will learn:


  • How to leverage technology they already own for mass notification 

  • How mass notification systems that utilize IPAWS can reach everyone in a geographic area  

  • The benefits of implementing a solution that can reach on-premises and mobile devices  

  • How mass notification can be used to help safely reopen your facilities

*Completion of this webinar makes you eligible for 1 CPE credit.  You must let us know if you would like to be submitted for the CPE credit.
