Planning Ahead: The Benefits of Templates in Your Emergency Notification Software

By | Emergency Management

A critical event can be incredibly stressful, and if you aren’t prepared to effectively communicate when disaster strikes, a negative situation can escalate quickly.

The cost of unpreparedness is high – a notification that is put together in the spur of the moment can have a devastating effect that will likely prove costly for an organization, both monetarily and otherwise. Informing the wrong users of an office closure, or failing to provide vital evacuation information in the case of a fire is a serious issue.

One way to take control and eliminate hurried responses is to create notification templates. Templates are pre-built notifications that include your message, pre-set delivery channels, your audience, and any other needed customizations like read confirmations and surveys. You can improve your emergency response plan by creating templates to ensure you always send out the right message at the right time. Read More
