Emergency Communications Systems (ECS) and Mass Notification Systems (MNS)

Emergency Communications Systems (ECS) and Mass Notification Systems (MNS) broadcast live, up-to-the minute emergency information to everyone in a building, campus, or multiple facilities spread across a city, state, even the globe, to help prevent injuries and save lives.

All Department of Defense (DOD) components are required to provide mass notification capability. This UFC (Unified Facilities Criteria) was developed by collecting and refining criteria from DOD antiterrorism guidance, examining previous mass notification system evaluation reports, and reviewing the capabilities of representative, commercially available mass notification products.
