Number of Respondents: 1,000,000.

Needs and Uses: The Emergency Mass Notification System is an Air Force enterprise-wide system that employs commercial software to send notices to the AF population through desktop, mobile application, telephone, text messaging alerts, and Giant Voice systems at Main Operating Bases (MOB). This system provides individuals with near-real time notifications sent directly from the AF/MAJCOM/Installation command posts.

This single AF enterprise solution will provide lifesaving and mission protective measures within the AF. The system shall have the capability of delivering reliable and secure emergency threat notifications to all personnel at all AF locations on a 24 hour/7 day a week basis.

EMNS is designated as a National Security System (NSS). EMNS must be maintained as a high integrity, high availability capability vital to operational readiness. The absence of such a system could result in immediate and sustained loss of mission effectiveness.

Affected Public: Individuals or households.

Frequency: On occasion.

Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.

OMB Desk Officer: Ms. Jasmeet Seehra.
