59% of Americans prefer to receive emergency notifications via their mobile phones.
Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) August 21, 2014
Students are at school, employees are at work, parents are home with children—the public is going about their normal everyday business. When suddenly disaster strikes! From weather related emergencies to school campus crises, the public deserves to be notified immediately. But when the sirens begin to blare, what happens to those who aren’t within earshot? What is the quickest, most effective way of reaching the masses?
According to a Harris Poll, at least 59% of Americans prefer to receive emergency notifications via their mobile phones than through any other means, while 90% indicate they would try to reach friends and family by phone first during any emergency situation. Since more than 90% of Americans carry a cellular phone, we can assume that most potential victims are near a phone or carrying a cellular device in their purse, pocket, or backpack when disaster strikes. That’s where CallFire’s powerful SMS texting and Voice Broadcast tools bring the emergency alerts directly to the people who need them instantly.
CallFire’s emergency notification systems comply with the Clery Act, which requires school campuses to maintain an emergency notification system. Don’t wait for a major disaster to occur, start setting up an emergency preparedness plan today for a safer and more secure tomorrow.
CallFire will run an Emergency Notifications Webinar Series (Aug 25 to Aug 29, 2014) focusing on products that have proven results with schools, companies and organizations - big and small across the country. The webinars will cover CallFire’s SMS & Voice Broadcast, Cloud Call Center, Call Tracking, and IVR solutions. Each webinar will demonstrate a specific product and its endless uses to help with your emergency preparedness campaigns.
As a community, organization, or business, have peace of mind knowing that those who are in dire need receive an instant warning. It’s a fact that nearly 95% of text messages get opened. Additionally, Voice Broadcast is an invaluable option that can save time and money allowing an administrator (from any location) to record their own messages and blast them out instantly.

1. Create an emergency notification, highlighting a particular product or service
2. Creating easy “Get More Information” options and call in IVR phone trees with auto-responses
