The University of Florida has used an InformaCast system for over a year to help them employ a multi-modal approach to emergency notification. In their most recent addition, the Department of Housing and Residence Education at the school has started using InformaCast to send UF Alerts to Four Winds Interactive digital displays.
In the event of an emergency, students will see a message like the one pictured, with the UF Alert logo, an alert message, and details and instructions for how they should respond.
This is all part of UF Alert, a compilation of procedures and technology that the university uses to notify the campus community in the event of an emergency. Students are educated to recognize UF Alerts as their information authority in times of crisis.
