Walter Reed Medical Center Deploys Interactive Crisis Warning System

crisis managementA military medical center in Bethesda, Md., has installed a government subcontractor’s emergency notification software to alert on-site personnel to crisis situations and other disruptive events, FCW reported Wednesday.

Walter Reed National Military Medical Center’s deployment of AtHoc’s Interactive Warning System also addresses Defense Department regulations on crisis communications that came after the 2009 Fort Hood shooting, Adam Mazmanian writes.

David Brown, vice president for defense and intelligence at AtHoc, said the deal with Walter Reed is for both force protection compliance and emergency notification, according to FCW.

Situational alerts for Walter Reed could also cover potential weather disaster, power outages and scheduled IT downtimes, notes Mazmanian.
