Emergency Alert Signage For Educational Environments

The application of Digital Signage Systems are being integrated into more and more public spaces each year. School districts and higher education campuses want to provide their students with the highest form of safety possible in the event of an emergency. Emergency alerts in educational environments are a powerful and effective way to display current information, immediately. Not only can the alert display information on the emergency, but it can also display the recommended course of action.

Best Practices for a Safe Environment

Last week, I wrote about how important it is to have a plan for emergency events. More lives are saved when a plan is in place and everyone knows what to do, rather than simply reacting to the situation.
The Council of Educational Facilities Planners International have released Safe Schools: A Best Practices Guide, for that very reason. The guide, available in PDF form for free online, emphasizes the need for communication in a crises. In fact, page 7 of the guide is titled Crisis Communications.
The guide lists recommended devices, including PA, cameras, multiple communication devices, broadcast messaging, and a plan, all of which MessageNet Connections can provide. We go a step further, however, and use the emergency system for everyday communications as well, to ensure that users wont forget how to use the system before an emergency happened.

Don't Be Surprised by Emergencies

While everyone hopes that emergency situations dont arise, its important to not let one take you by surprise. According to Campus Security Magazine, your emergency alert system is only as good as your plan.

Having a plan in place for any possible emergency situations is important and can save lives. However, Campus Security also believes in testing your emergency communication system regularly. Though they see this practice as a requirement to ensure your system works properly if and when an emergency arises, it can involve considerable time and expense for your organization. Eliminating this cost is why MessageNet Connections isnt designed to be just an emergency system. Its also designed for every day communication; when used daily, users wont forget how to use it in between emergencies and so that its effectively tested every day via constant use.

The article also discusses many different systems without talking about how they might work together. MessageNet Connections can integrate with many different types of systems, so its easier to unify communications and emergency alerts, rather than having many different emergency systems for different scenarios.

One integrated system that is used every day can save lives more easily and be cost-effective and more efficient at the same time.

Prepare For the Worst

All technology eventually fails. Cars, phones, tablets, computers, even MessageNet servers.

MessageNet Connections, which is often heavily relied upon for both everyday and emergency communications, is software and web browser-based. However, the hardware that supports it unfortunately cannot last forever. Many customers that have been with MessageNet for many years and have much older servers find that their hardware begins to fail; and the way theyve got their system set up means that until they can purchase a new server, theyre completely without MessageNet services. In addition, if the server failure stems from the hard-drive, data may not be recoverable and the customer would have to start from scratch.

Its important to have the right setup to protect data. MessageNet usually recommends having a redundant server setup so that if one server fails, theres a second one to act as back-up. However, this isnt always possible, so instead keeping a saved copy of the MessageNet hard-drive can prevent data loss and decrease down-time if a new server is needed.

Ill. College Adopts Mobile Safety App

Southern Illinois University Edwardville is using the mobile app for its unique campus design.

Rave Mobile Safety (Rave), a software partner for campus and public safety, announced that Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) has deployed the Rave Guardian Campus Safety App to increase protection for its more than 16,500 students, faculty and staff. 

Rave's Guardian App - which the university has labeled “SIUE-Safe”- is the first and most proven technology of its kind, protecting students at more than 1,200 higher education institutions across the United States.

The Rave Guardian Campus Safety App, a patented application which uses Rave's public safety-grade infrastructure and technology, transforms mobile phones into personal safety devices that engages an entire campus community in safety and policing efforts. It greatly improves communication and officials' ability to respond to incidents and protect students, faculty, and staff by delivering critical information in real-time, according to the company.

Rave Guardian lets users create a virtual safety network of friends, roommates, family and campus safety. Users can then set a “Safety Timer” session. Once activated, “personal guardians” in a virtual safety network can monitor a user's status updates and location, and be notified at assigned check-in times. If the timer expires, or the user initiates a panic call, Rave Guardian automatically notifies trusted safety resources on campus.

Additional features of Rave Guardian include anonymous tips or messaging, a fast connect button feature and opt-in safety profiles to improve emergency response.
