Emergency School Notification
Database Systems Corp. (DSC) is a leading provider of computer telephony related products including emergency notification systems and services using autodialers and voice broadcasting.
Emergency notification encompasses a broad spectrum of communications techniques and media to contact groups and individuals when an extraordinary event occurs.
This school call message can be delivered to a small group of individuals such as the faculty or a specific school building. Likewise an emergency alert can be broadcast to the entire campus or to the surrounding community including parents and students.
Absentee students can now be reported immediately to parents or guardians using our automated phone systems. This can be a vital service not only to report absentees, but to notify parents of missing children in a more timely manner.
DSC provides a telephone reassurance program called CARE which can be used by communities and schools to call latchkey kids at home after school to ensure they got home safely when parents are still at work.
Beside offering phone systems that make CARE calls, DSC provides a latchkey kids calling service into which individual parents can subscribe. The home alone children calling program can be managed by parents online using a secure web service. Parents can designate the dates and times the child is to be called and who is to be contacted when the child fails to answer the phone.

Bronxville Public School
"We are dedicated to bringing out the best in each student:
academic excellence, creativity, personal growth, and working together for the common good" - www.bronxville.k12.ny.us
Bronxville Public Schools currently utilize our emergency school call notification system that delivers urgent emergency warning messages to school members and faculty. These school alert messages provide information regarding school closings due to snow storms, severe weather, and other on campus emergencies.
How Does Our Emergency Service Work?
Emergency school messaging using our emergency phone dialers and service involves the transmission of a recorded phone message to hundreds or thousands of individuals in a short period of time. As the administrator of an emergency notification center, it is important to do the following:
- Create A Clear and Concise Phone Message
During an emergency, it is important that your recorded school alert message convey the information and instructions that you desire - no more and no less. Generally a 30 second message is considered the optimum length. If additional information needs to be conveyed, provide the call recipient with touchphone options to select from a menu or simply provide a contact number. Playing a long message may confuse the call recipient and diminish the importance of the emergency.
School alert messages can be recorded offline and uploaded over the internet. DSC also provides an 800 number to call and record the message over the phone.
- Create A List of Call Recipients
It is of important that the emergency message be delivered to the right audience. In many cases, your targeted group of message recipients has been predefined (faculty, parents, students, etc.). A specific emergency may require the building of this list based upon geographic or demographic requirements.
Emergency call lists can be stored on our phone system or call lists can be created from a master list of community residents by the administrator during the alert.
- Initiate The Emergency Phone Broadcast
Once the message has been created and the list of recipients identified, the emergency voice broadcast can be initiated.
Our emergency school notification process can be initiated over the internet using a secure administrative process. Likewise, emergency messages can be initiated over the phone using a touchphone keypad.
