We currently have a paging system in our company but would like to have the ability to broadcast an emergency announcement in case they need to evacuate. 

I would like to see the feature available in the future.

We would like this option as well

Yes, I would like this also. To have a recorded announcement play over phones or SIP enabled speakers with the touch of one button on the phone display or somehow through the apps to pre set extensions/speakers. This would be great for an emergency situation like a fire or active shooter.

We have classrooms that need the ability to send a lockdown alert to all phones in the system.  Currently we have to work with 3rd-party equipment.  To be able to interrupt existing phone calls to have the announcement go over the speakerphone would be a huge plus, especially for non-profits with limited funding.  

Also, to be able to have a single paging action reach more than 25 phones would be a plus.  Maybe live-page to the first 25 followed by replaying the page to the next page group, etc.

This may make sense to have an additional category in the RC management pages or at least a flag to mark a page group as an emergency page group.  Or, have a different command to perform an emergency page.
