AtHoc-Based Capability Installed at All United States Marine Corps Bases, Stations
By Nathesh, TMCnet Contributor
There are over 225,000 active duty Marines and civilians employed at United States Marine Corps (USMC) bases, camps, depots and stations around the globe. Now, USMC reportedly enhanced the protection of its personal by installing AtHoc Emergency Mass Notification System enterprise-wide, and by doing so attained compliance with its force protection mandates.
Guy Miasnik, president and CEO at AtHoc commented, “The U.S. Marine Corps now joins the vast majority of Defense and Homeland Security agencies in selecting AtHoc as the system of choice for their enterprise-wide emergency communication and mass notification requirements. Furthermore, the USMC’s deployment strengthens the DoD’s overall readiness to meet the mass notification system requirements laid out by the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) for full operational compliance by the January 2014 deadline.”
AtHoc’s network-centric mass notification and emergency communication systems provide for force protection and personnel accountability, whether for tenant units, bases, installations or entire commands.
Compliant with DoD and other federal specifications, the unified management platform is being relied upon by companies around the globe for emergency alerting and critical communication needs.
Being the only provider of enterprise-class emergency notification systems to U.S. government and homeland security sector, AtHoc asserted that USMC can now seamlessly reach out to its personnel through a variety of means, including networked desktop alerts, mobile phones, landline phones, Giant Voice/public address systems and social networks.
And with the addition of AtHoc’s unified alert management console, operation centers and command posts can supposedly attain this capability through a single Web-based console.
U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army Materiel Command, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and U.S. Coast Guard are some of the defense organizations that have deployed the AtHoc emergency notification platform.
Recently, TMCnet reported that emergency notification provider AtHoc helped companies reach their critical mass and U.S. Army Garrison Fort Hunter Liggett used AtHoc IWSAlerts emergency mass notification system.
