Crisis and Opportunity
John F. Kennedy, 35th President of the United States, once said, “When written in Chinese, the word crisis is composed of two characters—one represents danger, and the other represents opportunity.”
Crises come in all forms. Whether they’re floods, active shooters, hurricanes, oil leaks, or intruders, they all have one important factor in common: one never knows when they will occur. Why not take this opportunity—before a crisis occurs—to prepare your organization to thrive during any crisis, any time?
CentrAlert exists to help organizations before, during, and after a critical event. CentrAlert began in 1997 with the creation of the earliest iteration of C-DAC, which happened to be the world’s first site-wide emergency alert and notification system, for the U.S. Department of Energy. Now, 20 years and five generations later, CentrAlert’s Crisis-Driven Alert & Control, or C-DAC, protects NASA, Dow Chemical, Honeywell, Stanford University, and other leading organizations around the globe.
CentrAlert’s mission has always been to provide our clients with the tools necessary to safeguard their people and their assets against the effects of any crisis. That’s why we designed C-DAC with specialized mass notification, personal communication, and adaptive intelligent control capabilities. To continue our mission, we started this blog to keep you updated on important issues in the emergency management industry.
