MNS provide real-time information and instructions about the emergency situations in an area, building, or other spaces to people, first responders, and law enforcement agencies. The information is conveyed using intelligent voice communications, along with texts, graphics, visible signals, or other concrete communication methods. The purpose of mass notification is to protect life and property by indicating the occurrence of an emergency situation and instructing masses of the necessary responses and actions to be undertaken. MNS instruct and advise people on the likely actions they should take through concise, accurate, timely, and well-directed messages in an emergency situation. These applications help the management or responders or agencies to take quick decisions and advise masses on due course of actions in case of emergencies or disasters. MNS propagate well-directed messages to reduce the panic and chaos among masses. They can be used as a means to propagate messages, which can advise the rescue and relief agencies as well as law enforcement agencies on the proper due course of engagement during any emergency for speedy recovery of assets and people. MNS are gaining popularity among enterprises, as they are serving as vital means to ensure business continuity and disaster management.
