"Webinar: Keeping Students Safe with Outdoor Mass Communication"

Most colleges and universities have invested in emergency mass notification only to find that delays in the notification process hinders recipients' ability to maximize safety. In fact, during high-profile national tragedies, it was discovered that notifications were received after people became victims of the event. To supplement existing systems, Emergency Managers and Public Safety officers are turning to outdoor mass notification systems. This effective and redundant technology can be delivered faster and can penetrate buildings so all people in an impacted area can receive an immediate notification.

This webinar will trace the history of this technology and the most current and effective mass notification systems already in use within major colleges, universities, port authorities and other high profile locations.
