NYSC CDS Groups and Bulk SMS- Using SMS for Security Alerts and Safety Tips

  21 March 2016

The issue of safety and security has become a major one in Nigeria in recent years. Apart from violence erupting suddenly when least expected, other developments putting safety and security under threat can also happen so fast, more difficult when you are in a place you are not familiar with.

 

 

The various Corp members posted to different states in Nigeria for National Service face a constant fear for safety and security every day. This is because coupled with the general insecurity facing the country, being in an environment you are not familiar with poses dangers and problems most of the time. Most youth Corp members if not all find themselves far away from home, in most cases in a place where they know little about the culture, norms and people of the area. Security thus becomes a necessity.

 

As EXCOS in an NYSC CDS group, you must recognize that it is the responsibility of each Corp members to look after the general well being of their colleagues during the duration of the service year, and being an executive makes it more important for you to take the lead. For that’s what leadership entails.

 

It is very good then that CDS EXCOS should always have their ears on the ground and stay updated in their place of deployment. Sometimes, there might be an unexpected panic in the community and lives might be in danger or during elections where violence takes its toll. The EXCOS are responsible for intimating the entire members of such happenings.

 

You are going to need an effective communication channel to carry out this responsibility, more so because issues of security are serious ones. Bulk SMS has shown itself to be an efficient tool for this over the years. All you have to do when there are security alerts is to navigate to your bulk SMS account and send the alert to everybody at once, so they know how to protect themselves.

 

Apart from security issues, CDS groups EXCOS can also send timely safety tips to the entire group member from time to time as to what and what is needed during the duration of their service year to stay out of trouble.

 

Register a free bulk SMS account you do not have one at present, and use for this purpose. In fact, its uses for your CDS group are endless.
