You Will Learn about the following issues:

  • Warning the public of a danger is the most basic requirement of emergency management organizations. Not only do officials want to provide timely, informative alerts and warnings to citizens, it’s becoming a service the public expects.
  • Warning systems vary and there’s a nearly endless list of possibilities. Learn about the different categories of warning systems to help determine what will best fit your organization’s needs.
  • Information from surveys on factors to consider when using warning systems.
  • The Great Recession has brought increased hurdles to funding government projects and services. This Webinar will address new approaches to funding mass notification systems in tough budget years.
  • Looking at other organizations’ successful implementations is a good way to learn about best practices. We’ll examine two city success stories in implementing a mass notification system.
