Emergency Mass Notification System

Location: Boston, MA
Client:  Boston University

Project Description:

Vantage was engaged by the University Telecommunications Department to review and evaluate the University’s Emergency Mass Notification System, how it functioned, its management and maintenance, and whether it performed up to its published specifications.  Vantage participated in comprehensive testing of the system, interviewed senior and technical staff of the provider of the system, participated in user group discussions and undertook discussions with a wide variety of colleges and universities on how they provided emergency communications at their institutions.  Our work and ensuing report and discussions with University senior management resulted in improvements to the functioning, management and maintenance of the system.
