These days, school campuses have a greater responsibility than ever to keep students and faculty safe. Unfortunately, a crisis can occur at any timeā€”and without the proper avenue for notifying people on campus of dangerous situations as they unfold, countless lives could be put at risk. For this reason, many campuses across the country have begun implementing mass notification systems in addition to re-visiting their existing emergency procedures. Specifically, it’s estimated that nearly 75 percent of campuses have recently bought or will soon buy a mass notification solution.

While a mass notification system may not prevent crises from occurring on campus, they can help to reduce the risk to students and faculty. Mass notification systems can utilize a number of communication options to let students and faculty know about a potentially dangerous situation, such as a weather emergency, act of terror, mass shooting, or chemical/bio hazard. Some examples of communication methods may include:

* E-mails
* Text messages
* Wide Area Audible Communication
* In-Building Audible Communication

Furthermore, visual cues such as strobes, message board displays, and digital signage may also be useful in ensuring the message is clear to everybody on campus and reaches as many people as possible.
