Emergency Alerting for Public Safety – Top 10 needs – # 5 – Pop-up Alerts

Very often one is working on a desktop or a laptop on 4 or 5 applications with several documents open. Most studies have shown that people ignore fire alarms and loud speakers especially as they are listening to music and busy working. A very effective means is to interrupt the users on the desktop, laptop or SmartPhone with a Pop-up alert with the notification of the emergency as well as the graphics associated with that. Most Pop-ups do not allow the user to continue until the emergency is cleared.
