Top 3 Emergency Notification Tips for Business Continuity Awareness Week 2019

Business Continuity Awareness Week 2019 is May 13‑17

This global event is a time to consider business continuity and the value an effective continuity management program can have for your organization.

An emergency notification system is a crucial tool in any business continuity plan. Every day, events like the following happen with no warning:

  • Hurricanes, tornadoes, and other natural disasters
  • Active shooter
  • Urban wildfire
  • Power outages
  • Cybercrime
  • Disease outbreaks
  • Workplace violence

One of the most frequent consequences of these events is limited or impaired communication, making it difficult to relay critical messages regarding safety and disaster response. Emergency notification systems have proven to be a vital tool for today’s organizations.
