IDS Mobile App created to provide quick information

By Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

The Joint Base Charleston Integrated Delivery System has recently launched a mobile app to provide quick information for various events and services on Joint Base Charleston.

The "Joint Base Charleston IDS" downloadable app is now available for iPhone and Android smart phone users.

"Users can scan the following QRCs or search 'Joint Base Charleston IDS' to download the app," said Selwyn Stephens, Joint Base Charleston Drug Demand Reduction Program manager and IDS Marketing Working Group member. "The app is appropriate for everyone who is interested in information regarding the Joint Base community, including family members and retirees."

The mobile app is a work in progress but Stephens believes it will be a huge success.

"Originally we planned to incorporate only information from IDS agencies on the app but this quickly evolved into a much bigger project," Stephens said. "The app is becoming another tool to obtain information for most agencies on the Joint Base."

Stephens says they will continue to work with units around the base to add content and keep the app updated.

The Joint Base Charleston IDS Marketing Working Group is made up of representatives from organizations that provide family services and prevention and education activities related to individual, family and community concerns.

"The IDS functions as the action arm of the Community Action Information Board and develops a comprehensive, coordinated plan for integrating and implementing community outreach and prevention programs, with the goal of enhancing resilience in military communities," said Stephens.

The IDS improves the delivery of human-service programs by establishing a seamless system of services through collaborative partnerships and coordinated activities.

· Alcohol, Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment
