|What is an emergency?
A serious, unexpected, and often dangerous situation requiring immediate action.
Planning for many different emergencies - weather, mechanical, active shooter, etc. - is key to a successful response.
When setting up your plan for each emergency, ask yourself...
- Who do I contact about the situation?
- How will I contact them?
- What do I say?
Increased Efficiencies with Technology
Technology has enhanced emergency response capabilities. Pre-recorded
notifications with the proper terminology reduce errors that could be caused by
a natural human response to a stressful event. New emergency notification systems enable
situation dependent messages to be routed with the appropriate urgency to the
correct responders using a variety of delivery methods. The faster the notification, the faster the
response, and the greater likelihood of successfully handling the situation or
resolving the crisis.
