Emergency Notifications and Two-Way Communication

Reach Your Campus in an Emergency

chat-icon Email, texts, messaging apps, social media are a few of the ways students, faculty and staff communicate. When you need an emergency notification message to get noticed, you can’t rely on typical channels.

Build Positive Community Relationships

Campus Safety presentations aren’t enough to reach and engage with every student on campus. You can reach more students with a two-way communications app that empowers students to interact with campus police in a way they are most comfortable with, texting.

Campus Police can leverage texting, anonymous tip submission, virtual escorts, and direct dial to campus police, to break down barriers and build meaningful relationships. A two-way communications app branded for your campus builds positive relationships between students and campus police and empowers students to share timely safety and security information.

Ensure Campus Safety and Security

Schools, churches, outdoor events. There are a growing number of targets in each of our communities. Delay in notifying Campus Safety of suspicious activity or threats slows down the resolution of any incidents putting your campus’s safety at risk.

Technology today enables fast action by those on and off campus to send anonymous tips or trigger a panic call direct to Campus Safety. With two clicks, an emergency notification can be sent for an evacuation to clear the area enabling Campus Safety to respond to the scene.

The more information responders have before they arrive at the scene improves their response time, situational awareness, and could save a life.

Break Down Siloes of Internal Communication

Segregated departments and siloed communications deny higher education institutions the crucial information they need to respond and coordinate a response during an on-going incident.

When parents and the media require real-time updates, staff cannot waste time organizing dial-ins and call lists. Instead, a 1-click conference bridge gets everyone on the line instantly to execute the plan.

Since there’s no limit to the number messages, or recipients, every selected staff member can send internal notifications for fast communication that prevents delayed response and misinformation.

Proactively Communicate with your Campus

College and university officials grow frustrated when students, staff, and faculty don’t see or retain campus updates or important information.

Campus communities expect their school to proactively provide clear direction on emergencies, campus closures, severe weather updates, schedule changes, shuttle delays, and any information that requires action and attention.

You can easily meet campus expectations by segmenting your sends into unlimited groups—department, location, or any criteria you choose—for targeted messages.

For campus-wide communications, you can disseminate messages across all your channels including websites and all of your social media channels for greatest reach.

In order to be the authoritative source on events on your campus, you can easily disseminate facts around an incident by leveraging extensive reporting and can use audit trails and time stamps to provide a definitive timeline of events.
