Broadcast Health Warnings To Residents
If a medical alert or serious health problem should arise in your community, we can help you notify all or part of your residents. With our emergency notification phone service, you can broadcast medical and health warning messages to thousands of households in your community warning of catastrophic disasters including health alerts and health warnings.
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 community health alerts such as pollution warnings, sudden cold streaks or heat waves, etc. You can send a broadcast warning to specific neighborhoods or communities in the event of a localized problem and provide priority delivery of these messages to those nearest the health hazard. Multiple messages can be delivered to different members of the community based upon proximity to the affected area. Calls can be directed to operators that are standing by to handle special individual emergencies.
Messages can also be broadcast seeking volunteers or special assistance from emergency personnel.
Other applications include warning residents when the danger of a specific health hazard is at a high level, such as high pollution or pollen levels, heat wave, and cold snap. Travel and activity restrictions can likewise be broadcast using this service.
Alert 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 response 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.
