Rapid Mass Notification

When every minute counts, trust us to get your message out quickly and clearly to stakeholders with instantaneous telecommunications during emergencies—even during power outages. When every minute counts, trust us to get your message out quickly & clearly.

The Challenges
For a family downwind of a hazardous release, dropped calls can mean the difference between life and death. They need a telecom system that relays calls reliably even during outages and to multiple devices simultaneously.

Your organization requires an alert and response solution that provides streamlined notification, response and coordination to multiple devices whenever it becomes necessary to notify people of an emergency. You also need to mobilize your response teams to assist in emergency situations.

Where do you start?

We suggest that you evaluate rapid notification solutions based on the following key criteria:


  • Does the proposed solution meet all necessary functional requirements?
  • Is the proposed solution competitively priced?
  • Is the proposed solution easy to use?
  • Can I implement the proposed solution from anywhere?
  • Does the proposed solution have a demonstrated record of security and quality?
  • Does the proposed solution enhance your preparedness, continuity and general business communications?

The Solution: Cutting edge telecommunications technology
Black Gold has partnered with a cutting-edge communications technology company that provides reliable, real-time communications to stakeholders—even during power outages.

  • Text to speech
  • Text messages
  • E-mail messages to a targeted group


The instantaneous web-based reporting allows users to respond more efficiently during an emergency and within the regulatory notification requirements.

Stakeholder Consultations

Improve engagement and trust with your key stakeholders through our well-managed public consultation process.

Keep Reading »
We provide clarity about:

  • Hazards associated with the operations
  • Measures that are in place to protect the public
  • Procedures that would be implemented during an incident
  • Clear instructions who to contact in the event of a problem.


A well-designed public consultation program keeps residents in mind to ensure they are part of the emergency preparedness program. Success is measured by our client’s ability to respond effectively to public concerns, maintain credibility and increase public trust.


We have a proven track record of delivering effective consultation programs to a variety of sectors across North America.


In order to gather and maintain accurate emergency preparedness information, we can help you collaborate with:

  • Residents
  • Landowners
  • Occupants
  • Businesses
  • Organizations and agencies
  • Governments

Our public consultation specialists are trained to communicate openly, respectfully and responsibly in your community. We can help you with:

  • Personal visits with residents to listen and educate
  • Telephone calls to confirm information
  • Providing a channel of communication
  • Planning and facilitating large multi-stakeholder meetings or town halls
  • Compiling a report for quick and easy access to information.

GPS technology helps reach key audiences
We use global positioning technology to determine the location and altitude of homes, businesses and public facilities that could be impacted by an emergency event with pinpoint accuracy. We download waypoints, routes and tracks so that our maps are accurate and complete.


In addition to engaging residents, we work with local authorities and government agencies across North America on a continuous basis to notify them of operations and to consult and coordinate with them regarding their roles and responsibilities. This collaboration is required for effective emergency response plan development and execution.
