EMERGENCIES HAPPEN!

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.

Emergency Management Teams from NAS Oceana, NAVSTA Norfolk, NSA Hampton Roads, and JEB Little Creek-Fort Story Partner with Norfolk Tides to Talk Preparedness

 

The Norfolk Tides hosted their annual Hurricane Preparedness Day on Tuesday, June 29 due to a rain out on June 2.  This year, as in years past, Navy had a big presence, joining the Tides and community leaders in pushing hurricane and flood awareness. One of the big tips this year: Don’t wait to look into and invest in flood insurance! Flooding is the #1 natural disaster in the U.S., and it takes 30 days for a new flood insurance policy to take effect.

 

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.
