Everbridge Launches “Six Stages of a Crisis” Educational White Paper Series

Glendale, Calif. – Everbridge, the leading provider of interactive communication and mass notification solutions, has announced a series of educational white papers that detail the six stages of a crisis and the best practices for communication during these events. The white papers are authored by Dr. Robert Chandler, industry expert and author of Emergency Notification. The first white paper in the series, Stage One, The Warning Phase, is now available from Everbridge as a free download.

The Warning Phase is the first stage of a crisis – and often the most critical for emergency notifications. The Warning Phase notifications may be last instructions, reminders, and notices that are communicated before the chaos and confusion of a disaster or emergency springs forth. Even subtle differences in messages may result in either motivating an audience to act in a preferred manner or might unintentionally frighten them and have negative or undesired ramification.

In this paper, Dr. Robert Chandler summarizes five key recommendations for ensuring communications during the warning phase are clear, efficient and impactful to recipients when it matters most.
