Army in Europe to Adopt New Warning Notification System

Jeff Brody

The U.S. Army is implementing a new emergency messaging system at the service's installations in Europe, Army Times reported Wednesday. The Alert! Mass Warning Notification System will function to inform soldiers, Army civilians and families on catastrophic events including shootings and natural disasters, the report noted.

The new government-made system will succeed the Army's existing AtHoc system and, unlike the predecessor, will not require license fees. The service branch will automatically migrate all AtHoc users worldwide to Alert! through Feb. 29, 2020. Europe-based Army installations will undergo migration from July 22 to Aug. 2 this year.
