Fort Wainwright tested various automated messaging systems during its annual antiterrorism exercise this week. Contact information provided by Soldiers and DoD civilian employees into an emergency management notification system called AtHoc was used in distributing notifications during the exercise.
While messages were automatically sent to the phones of exercise participants; the same messages were also being conveyed to their secondary contacts.
As these messages are being broadcast, the words “Exercise, exercise, exercise” are used to denote, that the information is not a real world scenario and only meant for exercise input.
We apologize for this miscommunication and ask that all Soldiers and DoD civilians review their AtHoc information and make their emergency points of contact aware of the exercise messaging.
FYI: On June 28th from 8 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., Buildings 3566, 3567, 3593, and 3599 will be receiving necessary maintenance/construction that will temporarily interrupt your utility service. Please know that efforts will be made to minimize the impact to you and your neighbors.
If you have questions, call 907-455-1539.
