A test alert from the University of Oregon.

When college students arrive on campus, they enter a network that can inform them –by text or email– when the school faces a security threat. But that wasn’t always the case. How did tragedy shape the way local schools think about campus security alerts, and what role does technology play in informing those at risk? Kojo explores both issues with a representative of a local company early to introduce mass scale emergency notifications.
