The Port of Caddo-Bossier to Implement New Warning System for Tenants, Employees and Others

Home >> News >> The Port of Caddo-Bossier to Implement New Warning System for Tenants, Employees and Others

Shreveport, La. – The Port of Caddo-Bossier will soon implement a new mass emergency notification system to alert tenants, employees and others of potential problems at or near The Port.

The new system by OnSolve, is cloud-based which will allow Port officials to issue alerts regardless of whether they are actually on Port property. Large and small communities across the United States currently use the mass notification system to notify residents and employees about approaching severe weather, missing persons, and other issues that could impact their daily lives.

“This system will help so many people,” said Executive Port Director Eric England. “We will be able to alert our tenant management teams of any potential severe weather warnings, power outages, water main breaks, just about anything and everything that would impact operations at our tenant companies and at The Port.”

“As part of our promise to be a good neighbor, we want a person near The Port to know what is happening and how it may impact them,” said England. “Any number of issues impacting Port workers, could impact our neighbors. This system will keep them updated.”

 

The 2,600 acre Port of Caddo-Bossier is located at the head of navigation on the Red River Waterway in Northwest Louisiana. An inland multi-modal transportation and distribution center, The Port works hand in hand with the port system of Louisiana to successfully link customers throughout the Ark-La-Tex region to domestic and international markets via the Mississippi River, the nation's largest river system, and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway.
