  1. This is the second the system has failed and it is going to fail again. Imagine the fail over process is manual. In the absence of the system working normally, a lot can happen and lives could be compromised. The manual process should be replaced with something automatic. No one should be given a list of numbers in the middle of an emergency. The same number should be dialed and the routing of the call should be automated.
