Emergency Notification Services
Emergency Notification Services is a web-based service that provides speedy and simultaneous alerts or notifications via SMS, email, cellular and landlines to agency-chosen recipients. All or any combination of these end points can be used as recipients. ENS is easy to access and use to make programming changes, to initiate alerts and to send notifications. Outgoing alerts and notifications can be initiated by smart devices, laptops or personal computers.
Using a login id and password, agency designated administrator(s) can program and initiate alerts/notifications via interaction with the ENS.
Currently, ENS services are available via NASPO contract through the Office of State Procurement’s participating addenda. The contract has been designated as a Louisiana Pricing Schedule contract, therefore LAC 34:V.1709 must be followed by Louisiana purchasing entities utilizing the contract.
