While on a FreeConferenceCall, hosts have the ability to get a count of callers on the conference line, by pressing *(star) 2 on the phone key pad. Knowing the caller count is a great way to ensure all invited participants have dialed in. The *2 touch tone command can also help the host know if anyone new has joined or disconnected while the call is in progress.
We encourage everyone to be prepared for emergencies of any kind and, during the month of National Preparedness, FreeConferenceCall.com has highlighted how its services can help when disaster strikes. We discussed how SimpleBlast can be used to record a message and notify up to 10,000 contacts about an important meeting or conference call that is scheduled to take place. We explained how FreeConferenceCall and FreeConferencing are great ways to get volunteers and emergency responders all on one call when time is of the essence.
