Mass notification systems are an integral part of how colleges and universities like yours communicate with students, faculty and staff. The safety and the security of your campus community depends on how well your campus safety officials, emergency managers, CIOs and administrators are prepared for an emergency, as well as communicate directions and information.
Higher education institutions aim to ensure students, faculty and staff are informed during emergency drills, severe weather, power outages and other events. They’re also looking for ways to encourage students to share key information, so they’ll be empowered about their safety.
Ensure your messages get delivered by implementing a mass notification system consisting of a public safety grade infrastructure of multiple carriers, carrier networks and aggregators, and geo-redundant data centres.
Get all departments on the same page by having one communications platform with no limits to messages and recipients. Send targeted messages by segmenting your lists and assigning administrative rights by role, preventing a delayed response and alert fatigue.
When an emergency strikes, send messages out simultaneously through text, email, voice calls, social media, desktop alerts, sirens and digital signage — all from a single launch point in three clicks.
Encourage your campus community to be active participants in emergency planning with a two-way communications app extension connecting them directly with campus officials during emergencies and routine events.
A tornado, power outage or a crime can happen on your campus in a moment’s notice. Rave Alert™, the leading mass notification system, allows you to send messages to students, faculty and staff, whether they’re on or off campus. Send notifications simultaneously through text, social media, digital signage and more in three clicks from any Internet-connected device.
Allow students to discreetly and anonymously report crimes or suspicious activities with Rave Guardian™, a custom-branded mobile safety app. The app offers two-way communication for students to contact campus safety officials directly to provide them with key information for response strategies and enhanced situational awareness.
If a large-scale incident occurs, parents, contractors, guest lectures, camp visitors, sports fans and other visiting guests may be unaware of an imminent threat. A text to opt-in feature, which integrates into Rave Alert, allows institutions to temporarily communicate with campus visitors and ensures everyone on your campus will be informed.
Learn what questions you need to ask so you can determine if your mass notification system is equipped for the next emergency. You may only have a few minutes to alert students, faculty, staff and others.
