Agency-wide and Public Alerting
Advanced Crisis Communication Solutions
Over 50% of U.S. federal government personnel rely on AtHoc’s proven system to confront security threats as well as a full spectrum of human-caused and natural disasters. Safeguarding national, state, and local governments, as well as critical infrastructure such as airports, ports, and power plants, AtHoc enables 2-way alerts to hundreds of thousands of people, anywhere, with accuracy and real-time speed. AtHoc’s solution powers collaborative crisis management through mass interaction, mobile freedom of movement, and shared 360° situation visibility among multiple teams.
With AtHoc, government agencies can communicate with the general population, targeted groups or special needs individuals across multiple channels and redundant devices – computers, mobile/smartphones, IP phones, landlines, SMS/text, email, social networks, sirens, cable TV; as well as FEMA’s Integrated Public Alert Warning System (IPAWS). This ensures government organizations can protect their staff and public while providing essential government services through their continuity of operations plans.
