Fires - Emergency Dialers For Fire Alerts
If a serious fire were to erupt in your community, our emergency warning system can notify citizens in a matter of minutes. With our emergency notification phone service, you can broadcast warning messages to thousands of households in your community warning of catastrophic disasters including fires and fire alerts.
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 fire 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 local residential or business fire and provide priority delivery of these messages to those nearest the fire danger.
Multiple 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.
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 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.
