      What sort of systems do people have in place to activate their local disaster management systems? How do you contact staff and get them to come in?

      Does anyone have any good experience with specific formats or technologies? It makes sense to have redundancy given how unreliable some forms of communication can be during a city/state wide disaster. Interested in what everyone else is doing?

      Thanks

      We do have a call tree. All faculty and staff are broken into 4 tiers to be called in based on need. I have concerns though. When Baltimore had a small earthquake while I was living there, cell phone towers were too busy for phone calls for a few hours. I think I may have been able to send a text. Most people I know, don’t have a landline anymore.
