If you need emergency assistance, you can expect to get help from your installation, your branch of service resources. There are programs to support you in a variety of situations, including victim assistance, emergencies en route and service-specific relief societies. Below, you’ll find types of assistance, contact information, and detailed procedures and guidance to help you through any tough circumstances that you or your family may face.
If an emergency happens en-route to your new command, try to find the nearest military installation for assistance. If not near a military installation, the American Red Cross (ARC) is a liaison office for all military services for financial emergencies. You can get the nearest chapter's phone number in the white pages or call ARC at 877-272-7337 and they can direct you to the nearest chapter.
Unfortunately, emergencies can and do happen no matter how well you planned for your move. Having important information with you can help ease the frustration of an emergency. Ensure you have identification, and an emergency medical contact card on hand. First, make sure you always have a set of orders with you when you travel; in fact it is a good idea to have several sets of orders. Keep your new command's phone number and sponsor's number with you. Always check with your vehicle insurance company to confirm your policy limits and you have roadside emergency services including towing.
