Learn what your employees actually want when it comes to their safety at work and what that means for your business.

When the overflow of content is so extreme, it can be difficult to decide what is relevant and what is unnecessary buzz. AlertMedia’s sources can provide automated, personalized, and cultivated updates on events applicable to you. Our sources are monitored by real people, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to ensure you receive the most accurate details possible. By removing all nonessential information and following the right sources through Monitoring Center, you can be sure that you have the best data for your people.

We recommend following these five sources to stay informed:

1. Breaking News

The Breaking News source provides updates on all things urgent. Weather events, crime, and national security incidents all feature strongly on the source. Breaking News provides consistent updates on ongoing occurrences so you can stay in the loop on potential threats to your area.

2. Local Sources

Local police, fire departments, and government are invaluable references for regional information. You can expect to monitor information from your community sources such as news updates, criminal activity, road closures, and other relevant events in your area.

3. The Weather Channel

The Weather Channel source dispenses invaluable information about national weather events. From impending hurricanes to heat waves, their source is consistently filled with current weather information. During a major flood in Houston, one of our customers tracked the imminent storm through The Weather Channel via Monitoring Center and used our notification system to update employees throughout the event.

4. Center for Disease Control (CDC)

The Center for Disease Control doesn’t just track health incidents. They keep tabs on national emergencies, weather happenings, and various topics affecting the well-being of Americans. Their feed is highly useful for keeping an eye on the latest health and emergency crises.

5. Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)

While FEMA monitors the entirety of the country, their specific regions observe the interests of smaller areas. Following your specific FEMA region can provide you with robust and exceedingly accurate information in the event of an emergency. During an inclement weather situation in Colorado recently, FEMA provided data on where to go to receive disaster recovery relief and updates on the developing situation.

Our Monitoring Center makes it possible to stay current on important and breaking events that affect your business by tracking potential threats to report to your audience. Through Monitoring Center, you can keep your people safe and prepared for whatever may come your way.
