Ready Navy - The Navy's Emergency Preparedness Program

Ready Navy is the Navy's Emergency Preparedness Program and is sponsored by CNIC. Ready Navy is designed for you, the Navy community, to provide information, tools, and resources that empower the Navy family to more aptly prepare for, react, and recover when faced with any emergency, with or without advanced warning. Ready Navy covers an array of hazards individuals may encounter, ranging from hurricanes and earthquakes to terrorist attacks. The material, tips, and recommendations provided by Ready Navy are closely aligned with those offered to the public by and other authoritative government resources to include the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). You are an essential partner in emergency preparedness!

Ready Navy's History

Originally branded Operation Prepare and initiated through the Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) in FY07, the program has a demonstrated track record of promoting preparedness among the Navy community.  In 2012, the program was rebranded as Ready Navy in order to align with other programs being implemented across Department of Defense (DoD) and other government entities. The rebranded campaign launched September 1, 2012, empowering members of the Navy family as emergency preparedness partners before, during, and after an incident.

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.
