"We Make Marines"


Parris Island uses a mass notification system called AtHoc, which allows emergency management personnel to quickly notify everyone across the installation with a variety of devices, including computer screen pop-ups, telephone, email, Giant Voice, and text messaging.

This same system was put to good use during the 2013 active shooter incident at the Washington Navy Yard; the system was used to notify all personnel across the Navy Yard to shelter-in-place and barricade their offices until the all-clear was declared.

Self-registration via a Marine Corps-network computer is required for all base personnel. If you aren't sure or need help with self-registration, call the G-6 Help Desk at 843-228-2004.
