PATLive Shelters Businesses From Hurricane Season

Voice Broadcasting From PATLive Enables Organizations to Send Multiple Emergency Alerts

TALLAHASSEE, FL--(Marketwire - May 31, 2007) - PATLive's timely release of a Voice Broadcast Service coincides with the start of Hurricane Season on June 1st. Voice Broadcasting, popular with businesses and educational institutions, is also highly prized by state agencies and community organizations that must send alerts to hundreds or thousands of recipients on short notice.

Experts predict that this year's hurricane season will be very active and businesses are advised to be prepared. According to PATLive's Senior Sales Support Analyst, Sandi Gosnell, Voice Broadcasting is fundamental to disaster planning: "In times of forced evacuations, Voice Broadcasting can be used to let area residents know of the closest open shelters. It can include brief reminders with other pertinent information, like telling citizens to bring their important papers for safe keeping. Some schools already have this service set up to notify parents when school is being cancelled due to weather conditions."

PATLive has specialized in automated and live telephone answering services for several years. With the addition of Voice Broadcasting, any business can communicate even more effectively before, during, and after an emergency. Because of PATLive's wide range of experience in the industry, the company can offer extras with its broadcast service, such as transferring recipients to a PATLive Receptionist for personal attention. The service is user-friendly: recorded messages are disseminated 24/7 and online access allows users to upload call distribution lists they've created for their broadcasts. Gosnell: "When you're dealing with an emergency, the last thing you need added to your list is to call every employee to let them know whether to come to work or not. Voice Broadcasting can handle that for you."
