Emergency TXT alert
Staying in touch when it really matters… matters
After the February 2012 earthquake, it was apparent that we needed an emergency contact solution for our community. What we know now is the time it takes to reach the school during a significant earthquake event or emergency can mean that parents spend a lot of time worrying about the safety and well-being of their children. This solution provides timely information to parents and helps reassure them that their child/ren are safe and being cared for.
The text solution from TELECOM is provided to our community free of charge.
