Emergency Alerts by Phone
Setting up emergency alerts by phone has never been easier. Now you can easily allow people to opt-in to receive your alerts right from your own web-based control panel. Even setup different groups so people can choose to receive alerts based on their location or many different factors.
What Are Emergency Alerts by Phone?
Emergency alerts by phone allow authorities to notify large groups of residents in the event of an emergency or when a tragedy has occurred. While a good plan in theory, it does rely on residents actively signing up for the service. You can implement your emergency alerts by phone using DialMyCalls’ emergency notification system – add all of your contacts into your account and contact them via phone call, text message, and email.

When Are Emergency Alerts by Phone Helpful?
Emergency alerts by phone are used when the unthinkable happens. Bomb scares, plane crashes, and shootings are examples of emergencies that no one wants to think will affect them but unfortunately can.
Sadly, we have all become too familiar with the school shooting tragedy. District officials in Connecticut used emergency alerts during the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting to alert the parents of what was transpiring. DialMyCalls will do the same for you and your school if ever faced with a similar circumstance. The instant SMS texting feature lets you get the message out immediately, giving the parents and community notice that the authorities are on the scene and protecting the children.
Emergency Building Evacuation Message Alerts
The safety of employees and tenants inside of a building can be in jeopardy in face of a fire, gas leak, or water main break. If your office or building is suddenly being evacuated, don’t rely on a system of bells and lights to alert the inhabitants. Send the message to your employees and tenants via an SMS text message and/or automated phone call that they are in danger and need to leave the building now.
Of course it will be you that your contacts are looking to for the all clear signal once the emergency has been taken care of. Send one message and let everyone know it is safe to go back inside, or that it isn’t and they should go home for the day.
Medical Community Emergency Alerts
During a crisis while everyone is being told to stay out of harm’s way, hospital personnel are being alerted to get to work. All hands on deck emergency alerts sent to hospital employees, technicians, nurses, and doctors gets everyone in gear and ready to treat anyone hurt from the disaster.
Creating a DialMyCalls account allows you to create an emergency alert system that is easy to access when a sudden emergency arises.
