By taking advantage of the two increasingly
popular forms of communication (Cellular & E-Mail),
TONE2TXT has quickly become an item on every
emergency responder’s wish list.
TONE2TXT provides an innovative solution to your
fire department’s emergency communication needs.
Following an alert on your minitor/pager an
additional alert will be sent via text message to
your cellular phone. The text message sent to your
cellular phone will contain our voicemail system’s
telephone number. Upon calling our voicemail system
you will hear a recording of the last call received
on your minitor/pager.
Don’t have a cell phone? We’ve got you covered. We
can also send the audio from your station’s last
alert to your email address.
How we got started:
TONE2TXT was developed by a firefighter in
Pittsburgh, PA when he was unable to receive tones
to his minitor while at his work place. Since
cellular coverage was growing and becoming ever more
popular he began working on a process that would
send a text message to his cellular phone when his
minitor was tripped. This process has greatly
matured since then. Currently, TONE2TXT permits
alerted individuals to call into our voicemail
system to listen to their station’s most recent
call. In addition, email alerts containing an audio
recording of the last alert are also available.
No Man Left Unalerted!
