In an Emergency, time is of the essence, lives could be at stake and communications are critical. The devastating Tornadoes in Western Massachusetts recently reminded us all of the importance of an Emergency Response Plan.

Recently, a Community using the VoiceFriend solution had a Water Main break that affected the entire Community. The Executive Director had a message sent out to the residents and family alerting them to the disaster.
