The mission of the NMOTC and its 15 detachments throughout the United States is to provide operational medicine and aviation survival training for medical practitioners who support personnel around the world serving in the Army, Marine Corp, Navy and Air Force. As part of its effort to protect staff and students at its Pensacola headquarters, the NMOTC will deploy desktop alerts, text, phone call, email and notifications via smartphone applications provided by AtHoc. 

"We are proud to support the personnel safety and accountability aspect of NMOTC's mission to train those military medical personnel caring for the flying communities of all branches of the military," said Dave Brown, vice president, AtHoc Defense and Intelligence Group. "The expansion of our presence in the health care field accompanies the continued growth of our relationship with the Navy where we already protect more than 375,000 personnel stationed throughout the world. In addition to NMOTC, Navy Medicine has also implemented AtHoc's crisis communications system at the Navy's largest medical center on the West Coast, Naval Medical Center San Diego."

"NMOTC is recognized as the global leader in operational medicine training and is highly innovative and responsive to the challenges of the warfighter," said Jeff Hoyle, AtHoc's director of Technology and Navy Programs. "We're pleased that NMOTC has chosen AtHoc to keep its personnel safe and secure while focusing on its critical training mission for more than 23,000 personnel annually."
