Since March of 2020, emergency officials have significantly increased their notifications to the public for pandemic awareness and mitigation strategies. With an extremely active 2020 Hurricane and Wildfire season, messaging increased even more.
This increase in public messaging has led to alert fatigue across the public safety communication landscape. When people opt out of alerts, the job of Emergency Management officials becomes more difficult to communicate during disasters. How can you maintain your reach for safety notifications and alerts?
Join us for a conversation and hear some of the best practices in avoiding fatigue and re-engaging the community on receiving alerts and warnings.
