softwareThe U.S. Coast Guard has selected BlackBerry‘s AtHoc division to provide a software platform in support of efforts to expand the functionalities of the service branch’s alert warning tool.

AtHoc will integrate its Crisis Communication software with USCG’s Alert Warning System 2.0 in order to facilitate transmission of emergency alerts as well as reach service and civilian personnel through text, email or telephone during emergencies, AtHoc said Tuesday.
