  • Select which devices you want the message to go to
  • Select the recipients for the message - either by group/team in Plans (eg, Crisis team, Recovery Team); or by Employee list (this can be by site, by organisational structure or you can select all employees)
  • Click Next


  • Type a message - note SMS must be limited to 160 characters.
  • You can select to use a predefined Template or just type your own message.
  • Click Next.


  • Confirm details and click Initiate Callout


  • A Callout Status page will display and you can return to this at any time via the Communications>Notifications>Incidents menu option to show the status of messages.
  • If you have 2 way SMS enabled in your system you will be able to see responses on this screen.


Templates can also be created/edited by accessing this section from the Communications> Notifications> Incidents menu.
