Fires - Emergency Dialers For Fire Alerts
911 Broadcast is the emergency alert and notification division of Database Systems Corp. Using our PACER emergency dialers, we can broadcast emergency messages including fire alerts and warnings throughout your community.
If a serious fire were to erupt in your community, our emergency warning system can notify nearby households in a matter of minutes.
With our emergency voice broadcast phone service, we can broadcast warning messages to thousands of households in your community warning of catastrophic disasters including fires.
Fire alert messages can be simultaneously delivered to first responders, the adjacent fire departments, volunteer firemen, and EMS personnel in just minutes using our network of phone systems and services.
Pre-recorded warning messages can be played giving households information regarding the fire location and whether a community evacuation is planned or necessary. Our phone service can send a broadcast warning to specific neighborhoods or communities in the event of a local residential or business fire and provide priority delivery of these messages to those nearest the fire danger.

Redondo Beach Fire Department
"The Redondo Beach Fire Department mission is Serving the community by protecting life, property, and the environment through prevention, education and emergency services.” - www.redondo.org
The Redondo Beach Fire Department has contracted with Database Systems Corp. to provide emergency communications services. They utilize our emergency voice broadcasting services which are located in our Phoenix call center for emergency notification of members and staff.
911 Emergency Broadcast Services
Multiple alert messages can be delivered to different members of the community based upon proximity to the blaze. Calls can be directed to operators that are standing by to handle special individual emergencies.
Emergency dispatch messages can also be broadcast seeking volunteers or special assistance from emergency personnel including a volunteer fire department.
Remote communities have used this technology to warn residents when a controlled burn or training burn was scheduled, preventing a rash of 911 and emergency calls by concerned citizens.
Other applications include warning residents when the danger of fire is at a high level. Fire restrictions can likewise be broadcast using this service.
Messages sent to households in this fashion can be simple warnings with specific or general instructions. If the community needs feedback from the call, an interactive voice response, also refered to as IVR, can be programmed into the message allowing the person to either acknowledge the call or to contact someone. Messages can vary based upon proximity to the event, with different degrees of broadcast warning and instructions.

How To Use This Service?
This fire early warning and emergency broadcast service is easy to use. Calls can be initiated from our website or can be activated by phone. If you purchase our system, activation can be initiated using our easy-to-use wizard program.
Touch Phone Activation
Our emergency notification service can be initiated by calling our emergency 800 number and simply entering an account ID and password by touch phone.
Once validated, you can record your message and select from any number of lists of phone numbers (such as EMS crews).
That's it! We immediately start calling the individuals on the selected list playing the recorded message.
We also provide the same type of activation using our website. Here you also have the ability to maintain your lists as well as create new ones using our mapping systems.
When an emergency arises, you simply record your emergency message offline or use our toll free phone service to record your message.
Next identify your call recipients using a simple list manager or a graphical map display and send us your phone numbers via the internet. We do the rest.
Visit our Web User's Guide to see how this service can be managed and initiated.
Computer Message Activation
Our emergency notification network also supports computer and web connectivity using XML technology. Thus, emergency communication can be initiated from your website or computer by automatically sending our emergency phone system a message containing a list of one or more phone numbers and a message to be sent to these individuals. The message can be text (which is automatically converted to voice) or a voice file.

Purchased System Versus Contracted Service?
This is a question that communities should carefully consider. A purchased system gives you more control, but requires sufficient phone lines, equipment and on site technical knowledge to keep your system operational. The larger your community, the greater capital expense is required to broadcast your emergency messages in a timely fashion. If your message broadcasting system is used for more than just emergencies, it is easier to justify a purchase over contracted service. After all, emergency phone broadcasting is something you hope you never need to use.
Contracting your emergency broadcasting service for fire alerts requires less up front capital and can provide a faster emergency broadcast response if your provider has the resources available. Other than a monthly subscription fee, you only pay for the emergency broadcast as it occurs. System redundancy is available as well as centralized and experienced technical assistance.
