The tragedy at Virginia Tech is a reminder that rapid communication to the masses could possibly make the difference between life and death.
Loveland, CO (PRWEB) April 20, 2007
First Mobile Alert has announced an SMS messaging solution that allows instant broadcasting of warning and alert messages to students at any University, College or School. This cutting-edge technology provides campus officials the ability to send important messages direct to the cell phones of students within minutes.
Whether it is to be used for crisis notifications or less urgent matters such as school closings due to weather, First Mobile Alert's 21st century technology is there when seconds count. Campus officials merely need to send one message through the First Mobile Alert system and it will be instantly transmitted to all cell phones registered in the program. With the ability to broadcast 25,000 messages in under five minutes, First Mobile Alert provides a safe and secure custom SMS early warning messaging system designed to provide the fastest communication in the industry.
"The tragedy at Virginia Tech is a reminder that rapid communication to the masses could possibly make the difference between life and death." says TextCastLive CEO Joel Comm. "Our First Mobile Alert disaster response system is able to broadcast thousands of messages to student mobile phones in a manner of minutes, perhaps providing the precious time needed to appropriately respond to a crisis situation."
Originally developed for commercial and B2B purposes, the technology behind First Mobile Alert has now become a preferred front-runner to manage instant communication during crisis situations. University, College and School administrators may easily register their campus and students into the program.
"It is our hope that there will never be another incident like the one that just happened," says Comm. "But if it does occur, students, parents, teachers and school officials will have access to a tool that could save lives. Students and their parents at colleges across the country are indicating concern that their campus may not be prepared for such an event. First Mobile Alert is proud to have the technology in place to provide peace of mind."
While instant communication for emergencies is a primary goal of First Mobile Alert, the technology is also appropriate for weather warnings (hurricane, tornado, earthquake and thunderstorm), school closings and other campus-wide announcements.
Scalable for campuses of any size, including the nation's largest Universities, First Mobile Alert can be implented and rolled out anywhere in the United States before the Fall 2007 semester begins. First Mobile Alert Emergency Communication Specialists are available to discuss the needs of individual campuses and structure a program to address those needs.
First Mobile Alert is donating a portion of the proceeds from all services to charitable relief organizations serving those who are affected by natural disasters and tragedies.
First Mobile Alert is a subsidiary of TextCastLive, Inc. of Loveland, Colorado, a 21st century technology firm dedicated to providing B2B and B2C mobile communication solutions to the masses.
