THE CHALLENGE

When Hurricane Florence hit South Carolina, many residents were advised to evacuate. However, the state government still needed to be up and running during the storm, which meant that essential employees reported to the State House in downtown Columbia.

The Solution

To keep the governor and his staff, specific state agencies, law enforcement, legislative bodies and other essential employees out of harm’s way, safety officials deployed Rave Alert notifications to these 3,500 employees.

“In state government, there are essential employees that need to work around the clock, regardless of the weather. Rave Alert has been a great asset for us to be able to get out a clear, concise message in a short amount of time to multiple state agencies and employees that are vital to state government.”

MAJOR MATTHEW P. CALHOUN
ASSISTANT CHIEF
SOUTH CAROLINA BUREAU OF PROTECTIVE SERVICES

The Result

These employees were notified about their shifts and which entrances and exits in the building to use in order to stay safe during the hurricane. After the hurricane had passed, state safety officials used Rave Alert to warn employees about any safety hazards in or around the building as the state employees worked to clean up after the storm.
