Millions of Personnel Worldwide use AtHoc
Contra Costa County
Located in the San Francisco Bay area, this 800-square-mile community has a population of over one million – and six industrial facilities that handle hazardous materials on a daily basis. Both the county and all six facilities have an AtHoc terminal. Via sirens, phone notification, text, email and social media, this solution protects residents from both natural and man-made disasters. In fact, it can reach all users, citizens and relevant organizations with the push of a button, scaling to the size of audience – from twenty homes to 20,000 homes and agencies. Importantly, the platform’s Connect feature not only unifies and integrates the county’s crisis communication system with the community – it lets it easily share information with others. Even if they’re not AtHoc customers.
Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU)
Hosting more than 9 million passengers annually, the forward-thinking airport chose AtHoc to provide reliable communications for both crises and daily operations. RDU is working to extend the alerting capabilities to other organizations in the community.
This fast-growing port on the Gulf Coast sends alerts via desktop pop-ups, phone, email, text and push notifications. The interoperable AtHoc solution also allows them to unify communications with the greater community – bringing together state, local, federal and commercial partners.
Mexico National Center for Prevention of Disasters
CIRES – the country’s seismic warning system – alerts the public when an earthquake is imminent. Up to a minute before the ground starts shaking, radio, TV, texts, emergency alert receivers and other devices warn citizens to take shelter. Implemented in 1991, the system now covers five states with a population of over fourteen million. The system was updated in 2012, when AtHoc receivers were installed in 100,000 buildings and classrooms. In 2014, the country experienced a 7.2 earthquake, and the AtHoc solution gave residents precious time to evacuate buildings and/or shelter in place. In 2015, the platform tested successfully for tsunami alert in the Acapulco area.Watch Video
Superior Court of California, County of Orange
Encompassing seven courthouses and various facilities, the court system uses AtHoc to send alerts during emergencies, including evacuations and courthouse closures. Court personnel receive alerts as desktop pop-ups as well as via phone, email, text and the Notifier mobile app.
University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)
UCLA relies on AtHoc to protect some 60,000 students, faculty and staff across campus. Alerts reach subscribers through mobile devices, computers, email, phones, sirens and campus radio and TV.
Giving its citizens the freedom to choose how they’d like to be contacted, this innovative county uses various alerting tools to get the word out when danger is near – sirens, broadcast, telephone, text, email and more.
