Disasters affect hundreds of thousands of people every year, some with little to no advance warning. It may happen at your local Navy installation. It may happen to you.  While the Navy, emergency management, and first responders are committed to helping those in need; assistance may be delayed during a disaster. As part of the Navy community, you have a role in planning for emergencies -- Be/Stay informed. Make a plan. Build a kit.

NAF Misawa's Emergency Management Team Recognized for Disaster Preparedness Month Efforts

Naval Air Facility (NAF) Misawa's Emergency Management (EM) Team was recognized for their outstanding performance to increase disaster and emergency preparedness awareness during 2014's National Preparedness Month January 8, 2015. NAF's EM Team was one of twelve EM teams recognized Navy-wide in letters from Eric Rosenbach, the Assistant Secretary of Defense, for their creative and engaging initiatives.

In reply to acknowledgement of the team’s efforts during National Preparedness month, NAF EM Team member, Chief Damage Controlman Alberto Rodriguez said, "Historically, we've seen many disasters happen and most of the people affected don't have plans in place to take care of themselves and their loved ones resulting in unnecessary hardships. We will be able to effectively focus on handling the situation at hand knowing we've planned and have the means to survive on our own for an extended amount of time until outside disaster assistance is up and running."

When Admiral Nimitz said this in a speech at the University of California 22 March 1950, he recognized the resiliency of Sailors during that time and the important role each member of the Navy community plays in Navy and personal readiness. It is a sentiment that still rings true today of the 21st Century Sailor - empowered to prepare ourselves and our families to face any hazards with confidence and an outcome of success.
