Webinar: Communications Technology for Crisis Response Teams

Tools, tips and insights to provide you with a soup-to-nuts strategy on how to best use communications technology to manage alternative response programs.

THE PROBLEM

Crisis Response Team managers absolutely need the right communications technology:

  • To send the right responder
  • To the right location
  • At the right time
  • Every time

THE SOLUTION

Fortunately, a range of communications technologies exist to:

  • Manage your team effectively and efficiently
  • Regardless of your organization’s size or budget, and
  • Irrespective of your experience managing emergency communications systems

IN THIS WEBINAR

We’re going to help you:

  • Map out each stage of the emergency response workflow
  • Assess available communications solutions and what they offer
  • Develop a simple method to decide which communications solutions will work best for your operations

Crisis response teams need the right communications technology to reliably send help when and where it’s needed. Unfortunately, many organizations learn the hard way — after a system failure or a delayed response or simply by burning through their budget before they even launch. When developing an effective communications technology plan, the best way to avoid adverse outcomes is to be proactive, not reactive.

Not sure where to start? We’ve done the work for you. Trek Medics has designed this webinar to provide you with some essential tips and tools to help you select the right communications technology for your organization. We understand that there is no “one size fits all” plan, so we want to help you make sure you’ve designed something for your organization’s specific needs. And we’ve also invited a few emergency response partner organizations involved in substance abuse, domestic violence and behavioral health who have already done a lot of the heavy lifting to share from their own experiences.

Whether your crisis response program is comprised of government agencies, academic institutions, health organizations or a small group of community volunteers, this webinar will provide you with a “soup to nuts” strategy on how to best use technology to alert, coordinate, monitor, and scale your program — efficiently and effectively.

Who is this webinar for?

  • Crisis response team managers
  • 9-1-1 diversion programs
  • Alternative response networks
  • Government leaders
  • Mental health counselors
  • Domestic violence counselors
