It’s Valentine’s Day and love is in the air…chocolates, flowers, stuffed teddy bears…
But don’t forget to show some love to your organization’s emergency communication system! Nothing says love like keeping your workforce protected, safe, and informed when an incident occurs.
How I love thee, let me count the ways – 4 things to fall in love with when looking for an all-inclusive emergency notification system:
- Full-function, Native Mobile Application
Let’s face it. Disruptive incidents don’t always happen while you’re sitting at your desk at work. You need quick and easy access to bi-directional emergency messaging, incident reporting, proactive conference calling, critical documents and workforce contact information, and location mapping via geo-fencing. This allows you to mitigate downtime during an incident and ensure employee safety. Learn more about Preparis’ mobile-first solution for incident management.
- All-in-One Administration
A “patchwork quilt” approach won’t cut it anymore. Piecing together an emergency preparedness and incident management solution from multiple vendors is inefficient and costly. This means having to log into several different platforms (I have a hard-enough time remembering 1 password), thus, wasting valuable time during an incident.

- Cloud-based Document Sharing
Unlike traditional phone trees and binders that sit on a shelf collecting dust, cloud-based document storage ensures safe, reliable document access, even if your building or servers are unavailable. Not only are documents easier to access, but they are easier to update and share with crisis team members during a disruptive incident.
- Expert Content & Online Training
To help mitigate the effects an incident could have on your organization, you need ongoing guidance and threat-specific resources to keep your workforce informed and prepared. With a library of resources like tabletop exercises, online training courses, and threat checklists, teams can practice response and recovery efforts.
While this list might seem overwhelming, don’t feel like you’ve bit off more than you can chew.
