Primary emergency communication from DCMA to its employees will be done through the telephone- and email-based DCMA Mass Notification System (DMNS).
The DMNS is capable of working on a regional or agency-wide level. See "Staying In Touch" below for more information.
In many cases, a similar announcement will be posted on the homepage of this website and on DCMA's Facebook page at
Everyone in the agency should make sure they have the proper contact information in both the Fourth Estate Personnel Accountability and Assessment System (FEPASS) and in the DCMA Mass Notification System (DMNS). These are two separate databases that don't share information, so it's important you verify your contact information in both.
FEPASS is the Defense Department’s site used to account for the mostly-civilian Fourth Estate organizations like DCMA: https://fepaas.whs.mil/
Voluntarily update additional emergency contact information for receiving alert notification from DMNS using the DMNS Self-Service Module link.
Click the "My Profile" tab, then "Edit" to enter your emergency contact information. This will allow you to expand your notification devices, such as email, smartphone and text messaging for receiving an alert notification from DMNS.
If you receive a phone call from 804-734-1353 this call is coming from the DMNS Alert Notification system. Please respond when receiving a call from that number.
