Playing it Safe with Mass Notification Systems

 In Business Advice

A tornado is predicted to hit in fifteen minutes, and many of your employees have no idea there is even a severe weather warning. As a business owner, you have a responsibility to keep yourself and your employees safe.

In this type of emergency, an email or announcement may not be enough to relay important information to people in your building. How will you let your employees know exactly where to immediately go? A mass notification system is a reliable solution to inform everyone in your building in a quick and effective manner.

Sample Alert

“A tornado is expected to hit Kansas City today at approximately 4:15 p.m. Please proceed to the basement using the stairs on the north or east side of the building IMMEDIATELY. This is not a test.”

How Does it Work?

ACS uses an automated central Internet program to alert your employees in an emergency. We will give you specific instructions on how to sent out an emergency alert.

Types of Emergency Notifications

  1. Severe weather or tornado alerts

  2. Intruders or personal safety risks

  3. Fire, burglar or other unpredictable hazard

  4. Kidnapping and other crimes

How will my employees be notified?

There are numerous ways mass notification systems can be notified in an emergency. Options include phone calls, text messages, voicemails, radio alerts and social media updates.

Mass notification systems are not just for large businesses. Campuses, towns and other communities are turning to this service to ensure big groups of people stay informed and safe in emergency situations. Don’t wait until it’s too late to keep your employees safe. Contact ACS today for more information on how you can install a system.
