Communicating in an emergency

Communicating in an emergency

In an emergency situation, you need to communicate vital information with your employees quickly, and in a way that they won’t be able to miss.

Whether you have a fire, a severe weather event, an active shooter or terrorist activity, these situations are both serious and volatile. Getting the information out to everyone in a time-sensitive manner is critical.

Challenges of emergency communication

In an emergency you need your staff to act quickly. Traditional forms of company internal communication such as telephone, email and intranet are just not up to the task. Emails might not be seen. Calling everyone takes too much time.
