Administrative staff at non-profit relief organizations have the challenging task of communicating important information to residents during emergencies. Without an organized, centralized system of doing so, it can be overwhelming to handle in the moment. Taking as much of the workload as possible off of everyone during these situations is ideal, so there is more time to focus on the emergency protocol itself. Spending time manually contacting individuals during these high stress situations can be difficult for administration, and doesn’t always result in the fastest communication possible. This is where a digital solution comes into play, as it can handle the messaging process with automation, ensuring everyone receives the resources they need in a timely manner. There are many benefits that come along with implementing a digital notification system, but we are going to break down a few of the specifics in this post.
SimplyCast presents our Wildfire Evacuee Relief Notification use case, which leverages automation and communication tools to ensure these emergency situations are handled efficiently. By using QR code accessible landing pages, online forms, and a variety of digital communication tools, evacuees can rest assured they will receive the right resources for that situation.
Keeping everyone informed and safe in these high stress situations is the goal and having an automated system to help benefits everybody. Making sure the right information gets to whoever wants to receive it in a timely, efficient manner is one of the perks of a digital alternative. Here is the breakdown of how this use case can help your organization communicate with evacuees during emergencies.
Evacuees Can Self-Identify
By filling out a short online form, anyone can sign up to receive alerts as the situation progresses. This form is open to the public, so there are no restrictions on who can sign up. This form will collect contact and other crucial information, and store the evacuee's details for further use. Administrators don’t have to worry about keeping track of who has signed up, and everyone who is interested can receive the right resources.
Solution is Completely Adaptable
This solution’s adaptability allows it to function for any emergency scenario, and meet the requirements of that specific protocol. This means that it can be leveraged for situations other than a wildfire, providing alerts for other emergencies as well.
Ensures Notifications are Received
This solution can send messages through a variety of channels, including emails, text messages, and phone calls. It is completely up to the evacuee to decide what the optimal method of contact is for them. This ensures that the information reaches everyone on the alert list, via a method that works for them.
That’s all it takes to create an effective wildfire evacuee notification system and it’s only scratching the surface of what is possible when it comes to using digital technology to manage emergency responses.
