Emergency mass notification for Fort Bliss

AtHoc : 22 July, 2009  (Application Story)
The US Army's Fort Bliss facility has chosen a network based emergency mass notification system to enhance protection of 7500 personnel on the site
AtHoc has announced a deal with the US Army's Fort Bliss to deploy a network-centric emergency alerting system. Located in Texas and New Mexico, Fort Bliss is the US Army's largest training centre.

The deployment of AtHoc IWSAlerts IP-based mass notification system will enable the command's emergency planners to rapidly deliver emergency alerts via multiple devices such as computers, cell and landline phones, and the fort's existing public address system through a single, unified Web console.

Fort Bliss' adoption of a unified, network-centric alerting system represents another step in the Department of Defence's rollout of third-generation mass notification technology. Making use of existing IP networks and integrating existing mass notification capabilities results in an effective enterprise-wide system able to alert all personnel and receive feedback on their status.

"We are excited about working with the command at Fort Bliss and as we continue to expand AtHoc's presence in the US Army," said (Ret.) Army Colonel David Brown, Director of Army Operations for AtHoc. "The Fort Bliss installation presented some unique challenges for mass notification. The network-centric architecture of AtHoc IWSAlerts was a perfect solution for the fort's needs. Our third-generation solution will leverage the IP network to rapidly communicate with all personnel using their networked devices and seamlessly integrate with the fort's existing telephony and giant voice systems to provide a pervasive and rapid mass alerting system."
