Emergency Broadcast Systems
This section of our technical library presents information and documentation relating to Emergency Notification Systems and Disaster Recovery Applications.
If a severe snow storm hits your area, your community can be notified of school closings or event cancellations. Should an emergency arise in your community, our emergency broadcast phone service can deliver large volumes of phone messages quickly using thousands of digital and analog phone lines simultaneously. If a dangerous chemical spill occurs in your community, you can target specific areas to call. In the event of a blizzard, wild fire or devastating flood, your community can be notified quickly given specific instructions if an evacuation is required using our emergency broadcasting service.

AcsAPI Library Routines - Connection
int ACSConnect(const char * hostname, const HWND
int ACSConnect(const char * hostname);
These return the IP Address of DscACS (via asynchronous
response ACSAPI_RT_CONNECT), used for later threaded uploads of waves and phone
lists. The return code is an integer
representing the context of the connection, used in subsequent calls (Windows),
or a success return code. For all routines
below, add a preceding argument of “const int context” on all calls from a Windows
application - for example:
Windows (AcsApi32.dll): int ACSLMGRStart(const int context,
char * _campaign);
Unix (acsapi.so): int ACSLMGRStart(const char * _campaign);
(The only exception to this is ACSDecode(),
as it does not communicate with the DscACS service.)
int ACSDecode(const char * message, void *
int ACSMessage(char * message);
Tornados - Emergency Dialer for Tornado Warnings
If a tornado should threaten your community, our emergency warning service can contact your neighbors quickly. With our emergency notification phone service, you can broadcast warning messages to thousands of households in your community warning of catastrophic disasters including tornados and high wind storms.
Messages can be simultaneously delivered in just minutes using our network of phone systems and services. Pre-recorded warning messages can be played giving households information regarding the tornado and storm location and whether a community evacuation is planned or necessary.
You can send a broadcast warning to specific neighborhoods or communities in the event of a tornado and provide priority delivery of these messages to those households that are in the immediate path of these storms.
