Hurricane Zeta is Causing Gulf Coast Hospitals to Rely on FastCommand For Emergency Communication

·3 min read

FRANKLINTON, La., Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Once again Gulf Coast Hospitals are activating emergency internet banners in both Louisiana and Alabama to warn healthcare workers and patients in coastal counties under threat. Emergency Management weather updates for Hurricane Zeta are important for healthcare workers to make plans during possible daily disruptions. The intense wind and rain expected from this storm could cause flooding and other disasters that could interfere with travel to and from important work assignments for many healthcare employees on the Gulf Coast. Families and patients also need to have up-to-date information available due to the unpredictability of this hurricane.

Hospitals such as https://www.rmchospital.com in Franklinton, Louisiana, https://www.hardtnermedical.com in Olla, Louisiana, https://www.bunkiegeneralhealth.com in Bunkie, Louisiana, https://www.mizellmh.com in Opp, Alabama, https://www.jmc.org in Jackson, Alabama, and https://www.wchnh.org in Chatom, Alabama, have all altered their coronavirus emergency banners to refocus their message and priority onto the current weather threat.

Kasey Sellers, Strategic Emergency Liaison for FastCommand says, "I don't think anyone was expecting another major weather event so late in the season, but hospitals and other institutions are finding it crucial to be able to rely on their emergency communications systems to help them prepare and respond quickly during uncertain times. The coronavirus pandemic, social unrest, active shooter events, natural disasters, hacks, and economic uncertainty are all creating responsibility decisions like never before. Responsible leaders, CEOs, and administrators want to reduce risk, but they also want to do their best to protect their staff and citizens. We expect an explosion ahead of institutions needing web-based continuity systems and cyber-command platforms in the near future."

Innovative deflection technology now allows failing websites to be intercepted by non-technical staff during emergencies and disruptions. It is this capability that permits websites to have the ability to provide alternative continuity operations and alternate communication tools available when threats and disasters evolve.

Kevin Foote, CEO of FastHealth Corporation and FastCommand says, "What we're seeing is the value of internet dependency. Internet use and durability through many networks and devices have evolved to a trustworthy level for a dependable response, and the decision-makers of today are basing emergency management coordination through online mechanisms. The potential to coordinate information through existing website resources during emergencies is helping the flow of information to the public and to associated priority workers."
