Mass Notification Program Coordinator promotes the growth of UCSF Mass Notification Systems (MNS), which can deliver voice and data messages across multiple communication modalities simultaneously to the UCSF population of over 40,000 faculty, staff, students, and affiliates. The level of complexity in MNS has grown exponentially as research, academic, information technology, and clinical divisions have been added to UC portfolios and ever-changing technology and human capital needing analysis, consultation and training.
Due to the growing number of complex divisions requiring the development or maintenance of existing MNS within University of California and at the local, state, and federal levels, the expert analysis of systems dependencies amongst the University’s over 2,000 divisions, UCSF MNS is guided by a single point of coordination for UCSF myriad communications and alarm infrastructures.
