SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 --  AtHoc, Inc.

mass notification systems (EMNS), today announced that U.S. Army Ft.

and landline phones. The ability to trigger virtually all alerting
channels with a single click of a mouse ensures rapid notification
and personnel accountability before, during, and after emergencies. 
"By leveraging their existing IP network, the AtHoc IWSAlerts system
delivers emergency communications and personnel accountability
capabilities to Ft. Hunter Liggett and Camp Parks that reduces
overall infrastructure and maintenance costs, while significantly
expediting deployment time," said Dave Brown, Director of Operations,
U.S. Army at AtHoc. "The system greatly enhances their ability to
respond quickly to emergencies, while increasing visibility for
emergency managers and commanders on force status and ensuring full
EMNS regulatory compliance."
