Reston, Va. (August 2, 2016) – Celebrating a three-year partnership, RockDove Solutions announced today that The Boston Globe has renewed its use of its crisis management solution In Case of Crisis. The mobile app makes step-by-step guidelines for how to handle weather events, medical emergencies, workplace violence and other crisis scenarios available to employees on their smartphones and desktop devices, turning plans into digital playbooks for more than 700 employees.
Offering more consistent and accessible emergency planning tools, The Boston Globe provides all office employees, including newsroom, production and administrative staff, with emergency preparedness plans via the In Case of Crisis app. Complementary to existing paper-based safety materials, In Case of Crisis is helping The Boston Globe open up critical communication to employees in the office or out in the field during any crisis.
“Our office space operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so we needed a way to make safety instructions immediately available to all employees. A mobile app was the perfect solution,” said Anthony Schiavi, director of safety and environmental affairs, The Boston Globe. “In today’s environment, organizations need to be prepared for a growing number of unpredictable situations and In Case of Crisis helps us train and prepare our employees for these various scenarios.”
RockDove Solutions will help The Boston Globe revise its emergency preparedness plans next year when the organization moves into its new downtown Boston headquarters and new printing and distribution facility in Taunton.
“We are pleased to work with a prestigious partner like The Boston Globe and help the organization create a safer workplace for their employees,” said Christopher Britton, COO, RockDove Solutions. “In Case of Crisis has helped turn The Boston Globe’s emergency preparedness plans into actionable digital playbooks, giving employees an easy and secure way to access the most up-to-date safety procedures.”
