Authorized Emergency Operators of the Desktop Alert System are provided with a special telephone number for alert activation.
Step One: User dials designated Desktop Alert access phone number
Step Two: User is prompted for PIN Code
Step Three: User chooses Scenario for Activation
While the user may not be at a computer, the user can still activate the Desktop Alert System from a remote landline or cell phone.
For example: An administrator of the Desktop Alert System is off base/location and has determined the need to activate a cancel exercise alert due to weather conditions.
Once the remote telephone alert is activated, in 15 seconds or less such an alert would be able to activate the Desktop Alert System. In a mere matter of seconds, the EOC and other targeted recipients would be contacted by telephone, sms, e-mail and Desktop Alert pop-ups regarding the alert scenario.
