Emergency Actions



In the event of an emergency, the Navy expects all personnel, families, contractors, and others affiliated with a Navy installation to be prepared to take the appropriate action: evacuate, move to a civilian shelter, move to a designated safe haven, or temporarily shelter in place. You also should be able to recognize the mass warning and notification systems at your installation.

Navy personnel with NMCI or OneNet access must REGISTER all cell phones, home phone, and e-mail addresses in the Wide Area Alert Network (WAAN) to receive notifications wherever they are.

Follow the navigation links under Emergency Actions to learn more about these specific Navy emergency actions. Also, be sure to familiarize yourself with installation-specific information about evacuation routes, shelter locations, and local hazards.


Be Ready Navy—Be informed before, during, and after an incident; make a written family emergency plan; and build an emergency supply kit good for at least three days.
