In order to ensure proper organization and coordination, Corp members are divided into platoons on the NYSC camp, with a platoon commander and a platoon officer to oversee the affairs of the platoon. If you happen to be a platoon officer, you need to put all hands on deck to ensure your platoon comes out top in most competitions on camp, if not all. To accomplish this, regular communication with that large population is a necessity.
Especially during emergency meetings, important directives from camp officials, reminders and urgent updates is it necessary to get across to everyone at the same time. It might be difficult though to get everyone converged at such times especially if this is not a time for camp group activities. How then do you communicate such emergency meetings or information?
The Camp OBS is on ground to help announce any emergency information for a particular platoon, and very effective. All you need to do is supply them the needed information and they announce it. We’ve equally seen how bulk SMS can enhance their work. Click here to see.
However, you might also want to take charge of firsthand information to your platoon members yourself and shut out the third party. An effective means of communication for this is bulk SMS. With bulk SMS, you reach everyone right on time and get results. Good news, Corp members are allowed to have their mobile phones on camps.
All you need do is register a free bulk SMS account, get the phone contact of everyone and at such times of urgent information, go straight to it and send to all. It makes communication easier and faster. Give it a try.
