About the Emergency Notification System
Emergency communications is a key challenge facing colleges and universities across the country. With thousands of people on campus every day combined with the geographic reality of numerous buildings, the delivery of emergency communications can prove challenging in the event of a crisis or disaster.
The Emergency Communication system will be able to rapidly and automatically communicate with the college community in the event of a crisis or disaster. Emergency personnel will no longer have to distribute vital messages individually through a broadcast e-mail, voice mail, cell phone call or through the posting of flyers. When an incident occurs, WSU will be able to relay critical information to landline phones, email, cell phones, and more — all at the same time.
