What is AtHoc?
The AtHoc mass-warning notification system sends registered users emergency warnings and other critical information, such as hazardous road conditions, reporting delays, and base closures due to severe weather. The notifications are mostly local, but may also be theater-wide.
The system notifies users in several ways: as a pop-up on their workstation computer, an email to work and home addresses, a text message to their cell phone, and a voicemail to their work, home and cell phones. There is also a smartphone AtHoc application.
Keep your information up to date. If you move to a new office or get a new personal cell number, make sure to go into AtHoc and provide your current information. AtHoc is effective in reaching community members with critical messages in real time, but its success depends on users’ input.
Who must register?
AtHoc is NOT optional - it is a Headquarters Department of the Army (HQDA) requirement to be a registered user.
All U.S. and non-U.S. military, civilian (all categories) and contractor personnel whose normal place of duty is on an Army garrison, installation, community, forward site and/or facility must register in AtHoc.
