I received an email from the Seminary that I currently attend in light of the recent attacks on University of Texas by a gunman and I thought it would be worth sharing and encouraging organizations to get an emergency SMS service!
It can help quell panic and give people the comfort and information they most desperately need during a difficult time. There are a lot of great options out there for text messaging systems, and here’s just one that we’ve covered here on ChurchDrop as well as another that DTS uses.
I’m glad my seminary does this and I’m already signed up.
What are you waiting for? An emergency to happen first before you get one?
