DCMA has joined the Army-wide transition to the unified government-operated system “ALERT!.” The former mass warning and notification system (AtHoc) used for emergency notification in DCMA is being replaced by “Alert!,” effective August 8, 2019.
DCMA users should expect to receive messages from Alert! that their “information has been added to, or modified in the DOD (Department of Defense) Alert! Emergency Mass Notification System.” The Emergency Management office requests that all personnel validate, update or add (in some cases) their system information in Alert! for future notifications.
Service members, DoD civilians and contactor support can update information and register for the Alert MWNS by visiting https://alert.csd.disa.mil with their Common Access Card on any computer connected to the government network. If any difficulties are encountered, seek assistance from your operational unit mission support office, contingency planner/management analyst, or DCMA Emergency Management at email@example.com.
In many cases, a similar announcement will be posted on the homepage of this website and on DCMA's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/DefenseContractManagementAgency.
Note: the information on this page is applicable to DCMA employees only. Other (non-DCMA) DoD employees should contact the Alert! Helpdesk at (866) 515-0557 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with the ALERT! Mass Warning Notification System.
Update Your Emergency Contact Info!
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 Army Alert! https://alert.csd.disa.mil. 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/

Make a Kit!
Make sure your emergency kit is stocked with the items on the checklist below. Most of the items are inexpensive and easy to find, and any one of them could save your life. Headed to the store? Download a printable version to take with you. Once you take a look at the basic items, consider what unique needs your family might have, such as supplies for pets, or seniors.
After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several days. Being prepared means having your own food, water and other supplies to last for at least 72 hours. A disaster supplies kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.
This website provides information on Federal human resources (HR) benefits and flexibilities useful to Federal employees, annuitants, survivors, and agencies affected by Hurricanes and other natural disasters.
Agency Chief Human Capital Officers (CHCOs) regularly communicate the impact of Hurricanes on their agency websites. CHCOs and OPM will address HR–related questions and hardships our Federal community experiences as a result of natural disasters.
During the aftermath of Hurricanes, we will update this hurricane page and our social networks to relay new HR information, and we will remind you about HR benefits and flexibilities which are already available.
The handbook linked below includes guidance on available pay and leave benefits, including evacuation payments. For specific questions about pay or leave for your situation, please contact DCMA Human Capital at:
