3n Launches Safer Schools Program to Ensure Universal Access to Critical Campus Communication Tools

Following Virginia Tech Tragedy, Leading Mass Notification Provider Offers Deep Discounts to Colleges and Universities to Ensure Campus Safety

GLENDALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 18, 2007 -- As the Virginia Tech massacre illustrated, tragedy can strike in any place, at any moment. The ability to communicate on a large scale across many different contact devices and methods significantly enhances the ability of colleges, universities and other organizations to ensure the safety of students and educators. In light of the recent tragedy, 3n (National Notification Network), the leading mass notification system provider, is today launching the 3n Safer Schools Program to ensure that colleges and universities have access to the tools needed to respond efficiently and effectively to any emergency. From now through September 30, 2007, 3n is extending significant discounts to colleges and universities that sign up for the 3n mass notification system under the 3n Safer Schools Program.

3n's web-based mass notification service enables colleges and universities to effectively communicate with students, staff, facility and alumni in minutes via all contact methods -- including those most popular with Gen-Y students, such as cell phones, BlackBerry® devices, email, text messaging and instant messaging -- increasing the likelihood that messages will be delivered and read by those located on-campus and off-campus at any hour of the day or night.

Cinta Putra, CEO and co-founder of 3n, commented, "We are shocked and saddened by the Virginia Tech tragedy and send our condolences to the staff, students, families and friends of the victims. We strongly believe that every educational institution should have access to the critical emergency communication tools required to ensure the safety and well-being of our students and educators and that cost should not be a deterrent. As part of our commitment to the safety of our communities, 3n is making access to this essential technology more affordable for colleges and universities through the 3n Safer Schools Program with the sincere hope that this program will help make our schools more secure."
