Ask the Experts: Can the Pool Help us Perform Standing Drills?

As businesses reopen in Colorado, many members will make adjustments to workspaces to ensure appropriate physical distancing and employee safety. As you re-evaluate your district’s physical spaces post-shutdown, it’s important to also review your emergency response procedures, including fire drills and evacuation procedures.

If you would like to centralize and automate emergency communication or recurring drills for your district, the CSD Pool can help with SmartNotice, a service available at no cost to members.

SmartNotice is an all-in-one mass communication tool that some members already use for severe weather notifications and office closure notices (an important function in itself as COVID-19 has caused many offices to close).

But with scenarios that you can build and schedule in advance and launch from anywhere in moments, SmartNotice is also the perfect platform for sending emergency alerts and conducting regular drills.

In addition, SmartNotice allows administrators to track whether messages have been received, and it can collect responses from recipients in one centralized location. This makes it an excellent application to integrate into plans or table drills for emergency situations that aren’t as common, such as active shooter situations.

To get started with SmartNotice, or to request more information, email us at info@csdpool.org.
