From Galain President Rick Wimberly’s Blog “Alerts and Notifications: Best Practices For Emergency Notification Programs”

in Emergency Management Magazine

 Florida State University’s (FSU) web site lists 35, yes count ’em, 35 methods listed for emergency notifications and warnings.

They’re broken down into three categories:

  • Primary:  things like sirens, SMS, email, voice calls.
  • Secondary:  including social media, digital displays, two-way radios
  • Tertiary:  not within direct control of FSU, but available nontheless such as NOAA radio and local media

And, number 35 on the list:  Word of Mouth.  (Good one, FSU.)
