Send your contacts severe weather alerts
Quick action is often needed in severe weather situations, and Text-Em-All can help you get your information out fast. By using our service, you can immediately send a mass text message or voice message to your contacts, notifying them of weather advisories, cancellations, shelter notices, evacuations, or safety/precautionary instructions.
You can also create and save customized emergency alerts in advance to increase your response time in an emergency.
Here are some good use cases:
Remind tenants to drip their faucets
Inform contacts that classes, sports, or events are canceled due to local weather warnings
Notify your contacts that they need to evacuate the area
Ensure everyone knows to take shelter immediately in the event of a tornado or hurricane
Send follow-up messages to inform contacts that the weather has passed
How our service works
Add your contacts, and let us do the rest
We offer a few different ways to add contacts to your account. You can add your contacts' phone numbers to a broadcast or upload and manage contacts and groups to use when needed. We’ll automatically identify textable numbers, and show you any number that can’t receive a text.
Understand the results of your broadcasts
See exactly who answered, who received a voicemail, and whose numbers aren’t working anymore. All survey results will be compiled automatically into an easy-to-understand graph. We also provide detailed reports on billing history, usage, opt-outs, phone number history, credit balance, and text activity.
3 Benefits to sending weather alerts by text
Fast and efficient communication
With mass texting, you can send a message to as many contacts as you need to within minutes. This ensures that quick action can be taken in critical events such as severe weather warnings.
Using a mass texting service allows you to keep your contacts in the loop throughout the severe weather, and ensures your contacts are constantly taking precautions against imminent threats. Some severe weather, such as hurricane flooding or fire weather, can last for days, so being able to provide real-time updates is a massive benefit to text message alerts.
Gather responses with two-way texting
By using two-way texting, you can easily hold conversations with your contacts during extreme weather instead of being in the dark about whether they understand your message or not. You could even send out a survey to gain insight into whether your contacts are taking the proper precautions for the weather.
For example, during a freeze, you could send a message to your tenants asking if they're dripping their faucets and to respond "YES" if they are.
