The web-based corporate messaging tool DeskAlerts has issued a new warning to businesses across America, stating that when it comes to emergency communications, fire alarms alone aren’t enough.
The communications experts, DeskAlerts reached this conclusion following fresh new research into emergency internal communications. It found that one channel alarm systems are not sufficient to ensure employee safety and work best when complimented by other actions.
Anton Vdovin, Project Manager at DeskAlerts, said, “Through the course of our research it became apparent that one channel alarming systems such as fire alarms simply aren’t enough on their own. A system like a fire alarm cannot deliver useful details and can be counterproductive by actually causing panic.”
Adding a second type of notification to back up the primary channel was found to be a much more efficient emergency communications setup. Backing up the primary notification gives two distinctive advantages; different guides can be created for specific audiences and situations can be explained to audiences in more detail.

Robust and reliable and operative in technologically and geographically diverse networks it is an ideal solution for any business considering its emergency communications strategy.
