Emergency Communications Planning Enables Disaster Recovery

“The core of any contingency planning/disaster recovery plan is emergency communications,” according to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. “… A technology-based emergency-notification system is central to efficient emergency communications. This system will provide senior leadership with the ability to respond, direct and manage during a time of crisis.… Automated emergency notification systems enable fast, accurate strategic communication delivery that is documented, auditable and repeatable. Employees are notified in the manner they’ve chosen to be contacted–on their office phones, cell phones, pagers, PDAs and other wireless devices. If one method doesn’t get through, the system automatically attempts a back-up channel. And the system documents which employees were reached and the channels used.”
