ScreenCloud’s ‘Emergency Alerts’ feature complements and amplifies your existing safety protocols and processes; while keeping your people well-informed and up-to-date before, during and after these events.
In conjunction with other warning systems such as text messages and email, you can also use the Emergency Alerts app to broadcast information and instructions via your screens. With emergency alerts, your screens become another part of your multi-channel alert output, helping ensure critical information gets to those impacted – quickly.
Emergency Alerts is an app within ScreenCloud that acts as an extension of an existing Mass Alert Platform such as Singlewire, RAVE and Omnilert. When an event is triggered, we receive a message via common alert protocol (CAP) and override what is displayed on the screens. It will remain on screen until you decide to remove it.

When an emergency alert instance has been set up there is no need to schedule this within a playlist or channel. The instance will simply sit in the background listening for an alert and when triggered will automatically cast to all screens within that space.
The Emergency Alerts feature is available on our Pro and Enterprise plans and is included for all of our education and non-profit customers. If you can't see it in your account, please reach out to your account manager or support and we’ll get you sorted.
We would love to hear how you have been using the Emergency Alerts app. If you have any feedback for the team or just need help getting started, chat with us.
