First Official Test Scheduled for September 28, 2009

What: On September 28, 2009, the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office will conduct the first official test of its new emergency notification solution. The technology, developed by Dialogic Communications Corp. (DCC), is designed to automatically alert first responders and the local community should a critical situation, such as a natural disaster or public health threat, occur.

This test is necessary to ensure that the system is fully operational should an emergency actually occur. The system will deliver a detailed phone message informing first responders and residents they are listening to a test and will not be required to take any further steps.

 When:9:00 a.m. on September 28, 2009

This test will be repeated on the last Monday of each month at 9:00 a.m. to ensure the system is working properly.

Media: Interviews and additional information are available by contacting Sheriff Tom Allman at or by phone at (707) 463-4085. To learn more about DCC and its emergency notification technology, visit
