School communications company MGM Wireless wishes to let schools know that its School SMS family messaging service is available to any school across Australia at no cost to respond in emergency situations, such as the current spate of bomb hoaxes.
The announcement has been made in response to media reports that only one in four Victorian schools has the capability to message parents efficiently during an emergency.
“Our Outreach mobile app allows school leadership to send messages and status updates securely even when not on school grounds, in cases where schools have been evacuated.”
The company will also refund its current school customers for any messages related directly to the bomb hoaxes.
“Based on our previous experience, in emergency situations like this it is crucial to keep parents informed and to let them know there is a process in place,” Mr Fortunatow said.
“Each school is a small community, and together we make up a large community. Together we can work to reduce the fear and confusion and combat the cruel and random nature of these hoaxes.”
