Pepperdine Launches Comprehensive Emergency Communication System
To further strengthen University emergency preparedness, Pepperdine University has launched a comprehensive campus-wide emergency communication system leveraging InstaCom Campus Alert, a mass notification system from 3n (National Notification Network), the leading mass notification system provider.
The 3n mass notification system enables Pepperdine to communicate with students, staff, and faculty in minutes via a number of contact methods -- including native SMS text messaging, almost any voice-enabled device such as cell phones and landlines, instant messaging, pagers, faxes and more -- greatly increasing the likelihood that messages will be delivered and received in a timely manner.
Says Gary Hanson, Pepperdine executive vice president and chair of the Emergency Operations Committee: "After reviewing a number of notification systems, the capabilities of 3n's InstaCom Campus Alert system set it apart from the rest of the field. We are pleased to partner with 3n to enhance Pepperdine's emergency response capability."
3n's comprehensive emergency notification system can be used across Pepperdine's multiple campuses to assemble and coordinate public safety and crisis response teams; convene immediate briefings for the Emergency Operations Committee; notify students, faculty, and staff in minutes; and reach students on popular devices with voice and text simultaneously. It automatically cycles through all specified communication devices in an effort to reach people, reducing the time it takes to send critical messages while freeing up personnel to manage other critical tasks before, during, and after an emergency.
"Selecting a reliable and effective mass notification system has become a top priority for colleges and universities across the U.S.," said Cinta Putra, CEO and co-founder of 3n. "We are proud that after a rigorous selection process Pepperdine University selected 3n for the University's mass notification needs."
