Mass notification systems are often utilized during an emergency, especially on corporate campuses. Since many of these campuses are often spread out, a mass notification system is the best way to reach all your employees in the fastest possible way.
While many workplaces now utilize this tool, it doesn’t mean they are using it correctly. Here are a few things you can do to make sure your mass notification system runs smoothly and efficiently.
A surprising number of companies don’t evaluate their mass notification system properly. Many offices will only send emergency messages out by emails or texts, and while most employees always have their phones on them, some may not.
It’s best to launch messages to multiple channels. People may feel overwhelmed with all the messages coming in, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Large corporate campuses should test their security technologies and strategies on a regular basis to make sure that if a message is sent out, it isn’t missed by certain buildings or groups. Evaluating your system before an emergency will allow the company to see if it works or if it needs to be updated or changed.
Creating a security plan will also make the implementation of your mass notification system easier as well. You may need to create a slightly different plan for each unique emergency.
Details like evacuation routes or how to react during an unconventional crisis should be given out to all employees. A comprehensive system could save lives.
