Disaster Alert Systems
This section of our technical library presents articles written about Emergency Alert Systems and Disaster Recovery definitions, terms and related information.
The 911Broadcast emergency notification and alert service can deliver a large number of phone calls using a network of phone systems employing digital phone lines simultaneously. Should a disaster such as a snow storm, wild fire or flood hit your area, 911Broadcast systems can alert your community quickly providing specific instructions if an evacuation is required.
This service is available using our emergency broadcasting systems. If a dangerous chemical spill occurs in your community, you can target specific areas to call. If a severe snow storm hits your area, your community can be notified of school closings or event cancellations.

From: Louisiana Governor's Office of Homeland Security article entitled "What To Do In Case Of A Tornado".
MYTH: Areas near rivers, lakes, and mountains are safe from tornadoes.
FACT: No place is safe from tornadoes. In the late 1980ís, a tornado swept
through Yellowstone National Park leaving a path of destruction up and down a 10,000-ft. mountain.
MYTH: The low pressure with a tornado causes buildings to "explode" as the tornado passes overhead.
FACT: Violent winds and debris slamming into buildings cause most structural damage.
MYTH: Windows should be opened before a tornado approaches to equalize pressure and minimize damage.
FACT: Opening windows allows damaging wind to enter the structure. Leave the windows alone; instead, immediately go to a safe place.
Tornados - Emergency Dialer for Tornado Warnings
If a tornado should threaten your community, our emergency broadcast and warning service can contact your neighbors quickly. With our 911 emergency notification phone service, we can broadcast warning messages to thousands of households in your community warning of catastrophic disasters including tornados and high wind storms.
Emergency Alert 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.
We 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.
