SPEECH TECHNOLOGY, 21 JUNE 2010
Providing peace of mind to faculty, staff, students and their parents is a key initiative for any academic institution. Rapid, mass notification during a crisis on campus is critical to ensuring the safety of a university population. This was highlighted with frightening clarity in April 2007 with the tragic shooting deaths of 32 people at Virginia Tech. That seminal event hastened the adoption of emergency notification solutions in schools nationwide.
