The BlackBerry AtHoc mobile app brings the industry’s leading crisis communication capabilities to the palm of your hands.
During an event, users can receive critical alerts, and easily share pictures and videos from the field back to their operations center to enhance situational awareness across the organization. Users can also send one-click duress signals or even share their real-time GPS location to give further awareness of their location for added security and protection.
In addition, system operators are enabled to send alerts and manage their system while on-the-go, helping to get the word out and ensure safety for their people.

Ratings and Reviews
Works great - if you know what it's all about
The app works great, however it only works if your organization has the backside system in place. I use this app to receive and acknowledge notifications applicable to my organization, which is what it was designed to do. The backside system holds the ability to push notifications, etc. and will push notifications to all of your registered devices/means of contact (email, text via cell phone, this app, etc.) Once the event is cleared in the backside system, the notifications will be deleted. Again, this app is used to receive notifications and report accountability as pushed by the backside system, which it does very well.
Why, oh why, does this app not give the end user the ability to delete notifications that are no longer relevant? In this day and age, not giving the end user that simple ability makes this entire app useless due to all the clutter. Please consider adding this one function.
First thing you have to do after install is register. No problem, used work email. Still waiting for the confirmation email after 5 hours.
