Emergency Notification System
HEARD COUNTY PREPARES
EMERGENCIES WITH STATE-OF-THE-ART
“The Global Connect system will allow emergency personnel to record a
message and send that message to every telephone
number listed in the directory within a matter of
minutes,” explained Craig Bird, CEO and Founder of
Global Connect. “Whether residents need to be
informed of a water main break, fast-moving fire,
approaching storm, or other crisis, the Global
Connect Emergency Notification System is the most
efficient way to reach them with the news.”
The Global Connect Emergency Notification System uses Voice Over
Internet Protocol (VOIP) to send a message to a
database of telephone numbers and email addresses.
The system offers a number of features that render
it particularly useful during a crisis:
Callback – Residents who need
additional information or require special assistance
from the county can make a return call to a
designated telephone number with the press of a
single key on their telephone keypad.
Mapping Capability –
Municipalities can create a customized list of call
recipients by selecting the area(s) affected by the
emergency at hand. Global Connect will
instantly develop the list of telephone numbers for
residents in that area.
Access and Deployment – Emergency
management officials can deploy a message from any
location. Only a telephone is required to
record and send a broadcast.
Reporting – Municipal officials
can see immediately which residents have been
reached by telephone, and which have received
messages. The system will continue to call
residents who have not been reached as frequently
and as many times as desired.
- Empower your residents to
self-register their cell phones by completing the
