AtHoc welcomes the Red Cross to a community that includes the Department of Homeland Security and the vast majority of U.S. federal agencies. Founded in 1881, this premier humanitarian organization responds to 70,000 disasters every year, from home fires that affect a single family to earthquakes that impact millions. Now, when emergencies strike, the Red Cross can take action with a rapid, coordinated response – integrating local, county, state and national government agencies.
This powerful partnership represents a whole new level of emergency protection, including:
- The entire AtHoc networked crisis communication suite, which will safeguard over 100,000 personnel across 500 chapters
- Geo-tagged alerts and location information of personnel and volunteers
- Cross-chapter collaboration on demand
- The AtHoc mobile app, which enables real-time crisis collaboration on the go
The new alliance equips the Red Cross with all the proven features of the AtHoc platform, including the ability to collaborate with other emergency management entities – whether or not they're AtHoc customers.
