Planning, stakeholder participation and following NFPA 72 help to ensure your emergency alert systems will work when you need them.There are a lot of mass notification solutions available on the market today, and it’s generally considered a best practice to deploy several systems so that the strengths of each can address the weaknesses of the others. Choosing the right systems that will be most effective and appropriate for your organization, however, can be extremely challenging
