Emergency Management recently highlighted Northwest Missouri State University’s use of CrisisManager to communicate emergency response plans to students, faculty and staff on their smartphones. Lt. Mike Ceperley, the university’s emergency management coordinator, cited the mobile app’s ability to operate with or without a Wi-Fi connection as a top reason for using CrisisManager."Having it on the device is incredible," Ceperley said. "You don't have to be worried about being connected to have it." Ceperley also told the publication that CrisisManager resonates with their community, especially students, because it aligns with the way people access information today. According to Ceperley, "If it's not on their phone, they're not going to read it.”With CrisisManager, Northwest Missouri State University has created 19 incident categories under three distinct plans for its different audiences, including those at its outreach centers, members of its crisis management teams, and students, staff and faculty. Each emergency plan has specific information and step-by-step instructions for stakeholders.Read the full Emergency Management article here.
