Introducing Alertus Desktop
In the event of a local emergency, effective mass communication regarding that emergency must enlist a number of methods to ensure that the message is received in a timely manner. IT@Sam is proud to announce the deployment of Alertus Desktop to enhance our KatSafe Emergency Notification System.
This new addition will allow emergency messages to be displayed to networked campus PCs and Macintoshes. A screen similar to the image below will be displayed on the computer screen in the event of an emergency and will contain information on proper precautions to take.
On a related note, we'd like to take this opportunity to ask you to review and update your KatSafe contact information. To do so, log into SamWeb, click on Miscellaneous, and then click on KatSafe Emergency Contact Information.
