Code Blue Corporation, the industry leading manufacturer of emergency communication solutions, was highlighted in the most-recent issue of Campus Safety Magazine with a four-page pullout on the topic of emergency notification.
The feature listed popular mass notification solutions, and included an article written by Code Blue Communications Manager Michael Zuidema titled “Enhancing Emergency Communication Through Mass Notification and Integration.” An excerpt:
“Emergency situations happen in the blink of an eye. Students, faculty, staff and visitors need to be alerted as swiftly and effectively as possible, whether it’s an active shooter on campus or a sudden change in the weather. The key to making that a reality is taking a comprehensive approach across multiple platforms to offer the best possible safety and service. As technology continues to evolve and options available to campuses increase, the need for integration is becoming more and more essential. It’s important to consider not only all of the options available, but how they work together before settling on the right plan.”
The demand for mass notification systems that are able to communicate across more than one platform continues to increase, which is just one reason why Code Blue recommends Blue Alert® MNS, its sophisticated software solution that quickly informs and directs people in a clear and efficient manner. Designed specifically for campus environments, Blue Alert MNS is a comprehensive and cost-effective solution that delivers alerts via multiple platforms, including emergency phones, public address speakers, email, text, Facebook, Twitter, desktop alerts, digital signs, fire panels and more.
Blue Alert MNS recently was recognized as one of the Top 20 Products of 2013 by School Construction News magazine.
