AtHoc, an interactive warning system that allows senior leaders to inform base personnel of urgent information such as base closures or delayed openings, recently received updates to its system that allows the user to add dependent contact information.



Dependent Contact information

The update was implemented April 20, 2020 to allow dependents of members to receive EMNS (Emergency Management Notification System) notifications.


User profiles are now updated to include the input of one dependent phone and email address.  Sponsor update of dependent contact data is optional.  Alerts form/templates now include the ability to check Dependent Phone and/or Dependent Email as selectable devices for alert delivery. 


“The ability for members to add dependent information into AtHoc can benefit them by informing them of potential emergency or dangerous situations that are occurring on the base, especially during non-duty hours,” said Staff Sgt. Matthew Sharp, 14th Flying Training Wing command post NCO in charge of Command and Control Operations.


The entire process is voluntary. Members will have to go into their AtHoc profiles via the app or the desktop icon (white and purple globe) in the task bar to input their dependent information.



AFEMNS Mobile App

A recent AFEMNS system update has expanded capability.   AFEMNS user account holders can now register up to 10 Blackberry AtHoc Apps to support family member devices.    


The AFEMNS Mobile App (Blackberry AtHoc) is available on both the Google Play and Apple iOS App Store. From the Apple iOS or Google Play store, only the "Blackberry AtHoc" app should be selected.


To register the Mobile App, user accounts must have an updated "Personal Email" in their profile, will be required to validate the account, and need to know their host base Org Code (provided by the Command Post).   The AFEMNS Mobile App Install guide will assist you with installing the AFEMNS AtHoc Mobile App on your work or personal device.
