Disaster Preparedness

Disasters can affect anyone, at any time. Are you READY?

Why do I need to be ready?
Preparedness empowers you. It saves lives, property, and time.

What is Ready Navy?
Ready Navy is the Navy’s emergency preparedness program to ensure commands, Sailors, retirees, reservists, Department of Defense (DoD) employees, and their loved ones can be ready to meet crisis-related challenges.

By exploring the links on the Ready Navy site you will:

  • be informed of potential hazards and what to do before, during, and after an emergency
  • understand the steps to make an emergency plan that includes what to do, where to go, and what to take with you
  • learn to build a kit to support basic needs for a minimum of three days
  • access tools and resources to help you and your family prepare for emergency situations that could arise at any time with no warning

How can I learn more?
Contact your Fleet and Family Support Center to request FREE crisis preparedness information and Red Cross "Prepare for Emergencies" after "any sort of crisis"

How does Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) respond to crises?

  • Family Information Call Center (FICC):  The FICC is established to serve as a 24/7 information and referral telphone line for military family members during a crisis.
  • Emergency Family Assistance Center (EFAC):  The EFAC serves as a one-stop-shop resource and information hub where families can gather in a crisis for the latest information, legal support, counseling resources, financial support, and more.
  • Mobile Outreach Teams (MOTs):  FFSC deploys staff to all areas where Sailors and military families may gather, including on-base shelters/safe havens, community shelters, Local Assistance Centers, and other venues to provide on-site resources, referrals, and crisis/stress first aid.
  • Navy Family Accountability & Assessment System (NFAAS):  FFSC Case Managers respond to NFAAS assessments completed by Sailors, DoD civilians, and their families.  Case management is provided until all crisis-related resources are resolved.

What can I do?

  • Select one month each year to update all important paperwork, including your personnel record, Defense Eligibility and Enrollment Reporting System (DEERS) database records, NFAAS database records, and all other military and civilian databases.
  • Stay informed about the community.  A small fire in the corner of the county can be a major problem in a matter of hours.
  • Print, complete, and keep the disaster plan provided in the Key Links section of this website.
  • Build a kit!  Check out www.ready.navy.mil for tips on how to make your kit.
  • Practice drills with your loved ones several times each year, to make sure your skills are sharp.
  • Tell a friend.  Make sure everyone in your professional and personal circle is aware of the READY NAVY campaign and promote the importance of having a plan, building a kit, and being ready.
  • Keep your skills sharp.  Contact FFSC for one-on-one or group disaster preparedness training.
