What Every Emergency Manager Needs to Know this Hurricane Season Webinar

A record number of people lost their lives during a hurricane or tropical storm in 2017. And according to hurricane researchers at Colorado State University, 2018 is expected to be above-average in terms of storm activity.

Whether it’s a hurricane or another type of emergency event, a mass notification system can help residents get the information they need quickly, making the difference between conveying timely safety precautions and being caught unprepared.
