4.5 Emergency Notification System

ISU Live systems serve as a primary means of emergency communication to campus. It is strongly recommended that ISU live installations be left on at all times and that they have no other inputs or displayable content that can be switched to. If secondary inputs are desired or deemed necessary, the display must have a prominent, permanently displayed, printed message informing viewers that emergency messaging may not appear and to rely on other emergency notification sources. MDRPS will provide signs as needed.
