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 you are en route to your new command and an emergency does come up, try to find the nearest military installation for assistance. If you are not near a military installation, the American Red Cross 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. 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 that you have roadside emergency services including towing.
