Earthquakes - Emergency Dialers For Earthquake Alerts
Should an earthquake strike in your area, our phone service could help notify residents quickly. With our emergency notification phone service, you can broadcast warning messages to thousands of households in your community warning of catastrophic disasters such as earthquakes.
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 earthquake 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 an earthquake and provide priority delivery of these messages to those nearest the earthquake epicenter. Multiple messages can be delivered to different members of the community based upon proximity to the disaster.
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 earthquakes is at a high level. Travel and activity restrictions can likewise be broadcast using this service.
Earthquake 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.
