  1. Thanks for the great post. I work for an emergency notification company, and I can say that the recommendations in this white paper are definitely on point. We stress to companies and organizations that an emergency notification system like ours is only one component of a full-fledged emergency plan. A good plan should include other points including the coordination of security personnel, and other modes of communication to administrators. Thanks again, keep it up!
