Disasters don’t plan ahead. You can. Choose the right tech tools for your department to communicate
How will your department know how to communicate during disruptive events such as inclement weather or an emergency? Check out UW-IT’s Business Continuity Toolkit for ideas on how to share departmental updates and information using tech tools during emergency events. For example, you can use your internal web page. You can set up an email distribution list. You can turn a department voicemail box into a telephone hotline or set up a traditional phone call tree. You can conduct meetings by telephone or video conferencing.
