Disaster Voice Messaging Service

NTT DOCOMO provides Disaster Voice Messaging Service to deliver safety status information as voice messages in the event of a large-scale disaster.

Disaster Voice Messaging Service is a disaster service for delivering voice messages by packet communications instead of voice communications when an overflow of voice communications makes it difficult to establish a connection in the event of an earthquake with a seismic intensity of 6-lower or greater or other major disaster occurring.

When you post a voice message, the party you want to hear the message is notified by SMS (Short Message Service). (If you use Disaster Kit, you will be notified by Disaster Kit when the other party receives the SMS.)

Furthermore, this service is available with Disaster Kit when you use a smartphone or tablet.
