How To Use Our Emergency Alert Service?
Emergency alerts sent by our voice broadcasting systems consist of phone messages that are delivered to hundreds or thousands of households in a short period of time. Emergency alert administrators perform the following tasks:
- Create An Appropriate Emergency Alert Message
It is critical that your emergency alert message conveys accurate information and instructions. A 30 second alert message is considered optimum. If additional information needs to be conveyed, provide the call recipient with touchphone options to select from a menu or simply provide a number to call. Playing a long message may be confusing and diminish the importance of the emergency.
Emergency alert messages can be recorded offline and uploaded to our phone system using our online website. We also provide our emergency notification clients with a toll free phone number to call and to record the message by phone.
- Build A List of Call Recipients
The emergency alert message must be delivered to the right group or individuals at the appropriate time. In many cases, the message group has been pre-identified (members of a specfic geographic area, response groups, etc.). An emergency may dictate that the building of this list is based upon geographic or demographic considerations.
Emergency call lists can be maintained on our phone system or call lists can be created from a master list of community residents by the administrator.
- Initiate The Emergency Alert Broadcast
Once the message has been created and the list of recipients identified, the emergency alert service can be initiated.
Our emergency notification process can be initiated over the internet using a secure administrative process. Likewise, emergency messages can be initiated over the phone or by using our emergency XML messaging technology.
