CW Alerts

In emergencies always call 911 first!
Impt:   If you're outside our calling area you need to call 406-728-0911


Start at the top of the list and work your way down until you get to someone that can send the alert.  Currently its just me!

Alert senders will be listed here.  Keep the numbers handy and easily accessible.  Write them in your phone book.

Bill Cory #1:      Bill can be reached on either (Cell) 754-2683 or (Home) 406-890-6118 (you need to dial all 10 dgitis) 

Please Help by being an Alert Sender! 

I shouldn't be the only person that knows how to send an urgent alert! 

Alert Sender #2: Martin DeHaven is considering being an Alert Sender.  Once he gives the ok I will list his phone number here for you to call.

Alert Sender #3: Smokey The Bear and contact information.

Alert Sender #4: Woodsey Owl   and contact information.

 If you can help and be an "Alert Sender"  please call Bill at 754-2683    You will be given a user name and password and shown how to send an urgent alert.   You will be listed on this page for others to know who you are so they can contact you and have you send an alert to the Lindbergh Lake Road community. 

 

 As a general practice, the notifications should contain these essential elements:

— The message source *** Who is sending the message. You can say this is from the Lindy Alert.

— The threat *** A description of the danger to people or property.

— The threat location*** The location or boundaries of the critical event.

— Guidance or instructions *** The actions you want your audience to take.

— Expiration time *** Let your audience know when the message expires.

The Swan Valley Quick Response Unit (QRU) , Swan Valley Volunteer Fire Department, local DNRC , The Montana Department of Emergency Services (DES) and Sheriffs office have all  been notified of the Lindy Alert.  Several People along Lindbergh Lake Rd are part of the county emergency QRU (including Bill Cory) and will be notified immediately when 911 calls are received or announced over their radios from  Missoula County Emergency Services.   When appropriate they can relay the above  information via a  Lindy Alert.

 

Note:   I shouldn't be the only person that knows how to send out an urgent alert!    There will be times when I'm not available to send out an alert...... So there needs to be several people along the Lindbergh Lake RD community that have access to the internet.  They don't have to be at Lindbergh Lake all the time, the requirement is that they have access to the internet.

I will put more tutorials on this web site but you can also go to Dialmycalls.com and watch the tutorials!   Or I'll sit down with you in front of a computer or cell phone app and show you how it works.   

I created a GoFundMe Give Butter page to help recoup the expenses, maybe this should be a subscription instead?   My hope is that only a few Lindy  Alerts are sent per year.    If you want to help your LL community please volunteer as an "Alert Sender".

??What is the Lindy Alert??:    It is similar to  the old fashioned phone tree.  However only one person is needed to send the alert to everyone within seconds.   All those signed up will get the urgent alert on either their landline or text phone or both.

The Lindy "Alert Sender" is phoned or contacted in person.  There will be several alert senders in case the one you call is unavailable.  It is possible for everyone to be an alert sender if they want, but this can get unwieldly for me.   So maybe a dozen or senders should be enough.  The "Alert Sender" uses the DMC system to send the alert to all landline and text phones registered with the Lindy Alert.

We need "Alert Senders"  please help.   There are several ways you can send an alert.   Option 1:  is by using an internet connection with your computer.  Option 2 is using your telephone to record a message and send it out.  See the"Training Tab" or go to the DialMyCalls Website tutorials.

 

Click the bulleted links below to hear an example of the alert you would get on either your landline phone or smarphone (text message) or both. 

 

The alert can be sent to 100's of landline and mobile phones.  Everyone on the database shall be alerted within seconds.   It's important to know that DMC will not send out alerts if we do not have enough money banked in the account!
