Can Asterisk call someone automaticaly?



And first sorry for my bad english, i’m french but i will try to do my best to explain my problem…

Well, i need to install a modem (rtc), and follow a situation, (like there is the rain outdoor), my modem call someone automaticaly and warn the guy that it is raining…

I think i can do that with Asterisk, right ?

I rode meany infos about how to receive an incoming call, but not so much bout doing a call…

Is it possible to do this ?
Do you have some docs about outcoming calls ?
Which .conf i need to edit ?

Thanks for any help,
