EM Representatives (EMR) are assigned to Directorates and Special Staffs to assist you, there are many other resources available to you - MacDill AFB EM office, or local/county EM offices.
This site offers basic information regarding personal and family preparedness. It is intended to answer questions you have and those not yet considered. There are 3 Steps to Preparedness, which should be considered throughout the year...Get Informed, Have a Plan, Build a Kit.
HQ USCENTCOM Directorate and Special Staff EMRs can be contacted using the Emergency Information Cards (issued through organizational resources).
During evacuations and following disasters, there are two toll-free telephone numbers you can call to hear recorded, updated information about MacDill AFB and HQ USCENTCOM. Call the InfoLines when trying to find MacDill AFB or USCENTCOM-specific instructions, directions, or base status.
