In case you were not able to attend last week’s conference, don’t worry—we’ve got you covered. The National Hurricane Conference (NHC) in Orlando, Florida concluded with an enlightening panel workshop featuring FEMA IPAWS personnel, Spartanburg County, South Carolina’s Emergency Management Director, and CodeRED representatives Don Hall and Troy Harper. The session centered on encouraging public safety officials to focus more time and energy on leveraging today’s widely available mobile technologies to enhance their mass notification planning efforts and alerting capabilities.
The presentation covered statistical information depicting the nation’s dependency on wireless and mobile devices via the adoption of mobile apps, which are becoming increasingly available to citizens around the country as an added means of communication. When mobile technology and new alerting methods are incorporated properly into your emergency communication plans, delivery success rates can triple. For this simple reason alone, public safety officials across every jurisdiction should be sure to leverage new and emerging mobile technologies to support their mass notification system capabilities.
