Recent events have shown us that natural disasters can occur at any time. Our hearts go out to the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Amidst any natural disaster one of the biggest challenges is effective communication. For the elderly population, it can be a matter of life and death. For example, during Hurricane Katrina 71% of those who died were older than 60 (1). Magnolia Prime’s TelebeneficiaryTM service provides organizations, that support the aging population, with an automated communications tool that delivers scheduled, native language messages. We hope that Magnolia Prime will give organizations peace-of-mind knowing they are better prepared to communicate with their residents in the event of a potential disaster.
In the early stages of a natural disaster, during the watch and warnings, Magnolia Prime can support your emergency preparedness procedures, allowing you to communicate with your residents through use of customized voice messages. Specific features to help in a disaster include:
Language translations make sure your messages are heard AND understood by everyone.
You can see in real time if residents have received your updates enabling you to respond quickly.
Two-way communication makes it easy for residents to reply to questions such as “were you able to evacuate to a safe environment?” or “what is your current location?”
All in all, Magnolia Prime can lessen the administrative burden so you can better focus on what matters most, the health and safety of you and your residents.
