JBLE urges personnel to register for emergency notifications
JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, Va. —
In accordance with Joint Base Langley-Eustis command, all personnel with nonclassified internet protocol (NIPR) system access are required to register and activate their AtHoc icon upon arrival to the installation.
AtHoc is an emergency mass notification system that provides multiple crisis and mass notification capabilities.
“The program helps JBLE Airmen, Soldiers and Civilians communicate and collaborate during any unforeseen real world or manmade crisis or emergencies, said Kevin Castro, JBLE Command Post chief. “During crisis incidents, for example an Active Shooter, those who are at their facility work stations will receive a desktop message-banner notifying the user of an impending or ongoing crisis.”
