Send Word Now Prepares to Deliver Critical Alerts in Connection With "Frankenstorm Sandy"

Send Word Now's Alerting Service to Be Used by Hundreds of Customers Across the Eastern Seaboard Before, During, and After Hurricane Sandy

​​NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 26, 2012) - Send Word Now, the leading worldwide provider of emergency notification and incident management services, announced today that the company is fully prepared to assist clients and prospects with any and all emergency alerts as the Eastern Seaboard readies for Hurricane Sandy. The effects of the storm, which has already hit Cuba and the Bahamas and is expected to include an unusual mix of a winter storm and a hurricane, will be felt all the way from Florida to Ohio. Some meteorologists have noted that current conditions could put this storm on par with the "perfect storm" that struck off the coast of New England in 1991, and the worst of the storm is predicted to hit New York City and New Jersey. 

Businesses, agencies and communities throughout the states that may be impacted have already begun to make emergency preparations and to activate coastal storm emergency preparedness and business continuity plans. Send Word Now customers have the added peace of mind that the company's robust, on-demand communication platform is available to them to send warnings, updates, and instructions via a variety of devices, including landlines, cellular phones, e-mail, and BlackBerry® PIN at any time. With Send Word Now's unmatched 100% uptime guarantee, customers know that they can count on Send Word Now during an emergency. 

"As a New York City-based company that successfully helped customers through Hurricane Irene in 2011, we are very aware of the dangers posed by Hurricane Sandy," said Tony Schmitz, President and CEO of Send Word Now. We encourage all customers to determine in advance how they plan to keep their employees, residents, stakeholders, and property safe during the hurricane. Send Word Now is fully prepared to support our customers' emergency preparedness efforts in any way that we can."
