Media Advisory: Campus Safety: How Do We Communicate During a Crisis?

Virginia Tech Massacre Highlights Importance of Effective Emergency Communication in Saving Lives

GLENDALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 17, 2007 --


WHAT:          Schools should be "places of sanctuary and safety."
               Yet in the aftermath of the Virginia Tech massacre, one
               thing is certain: we are all vulnerable to random acts of
               violence. As questions continue to arise concerning the
               response to the first shooting at Virginia Tech's West
               Ambler Johnston dorm and difficulty in effectively warning
               on-campus and off-campus students and educators, it becomes
               clearer that our ability - or inability - to communicate
               on a large scale and across devices can make the greatest
               impact on safety and prevention efforts. However, few
               schools and universities are equipped to deal with
               unexpected emergencies.

               Understanding the role of notification - for campus safety
               updates, warnings and evacuations - is crucial to protecting
               any university, college or community. Your viewers and
               listeners will be interested in hearing experts and users
               discuss how universities and schools can better prepare
               their communications plans for improved responses to all
               types of disasters, ensuring the safety of students and
               teachers.
