Base Bulletin - week of Jan. 29

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Register for AtHoc messages 
Many of you may have noticed lately that the "AtHoc" messaging system doesn't always seem to get to you.  This system is designed to send mass alerts using desktop pop-ups, emails, texts, and voicemails.  The alerts are particularly handy when we have base closures/delays. In order to ensure that everyone is receiving the messages, you need to make sure your information is uploaded correctly to the system.  Directions to do this are uploaded to the following SharePoint site: https://eis.afspc.af.mil/unit/50sw/Home/CC%20Topics/Forms/AllItems.aspx. Please direct any questions to the Regional Command Post at 21sw.cp.csrcpsystems@us.af.mil.
