Emergency Preparedness

The HQ USCENTCOM Emergency Management (EM) Program assists all assigned military, civil service, and contract employees and their families to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural disasters, technological accidents (man-made), and hostile attacks involving weapons of mass destruction (explosives, toxic industrial chemicals/materials, etc.).

This site offers basic information regarding personal and family preparedness. It is intended to answer some questions you have and those not yet considered. Emergency Preparedness can be narrowed to three basic steps for year-round application – not just during Hurricane Season (1 June to 30 November).

1. Have a Plan

2. Build a Kit

3. Stay Informed (a continuous process!)


Know what resources are available to families and CENTCOM employees. Become familiar with the resources the best apply to the area in which you live and work. Learn the zones and plans that apply to the county that you live in. Sign up for alert and notification systems that are available. The following information provides you a good overview of what is available in terms of information and education resources as well as alert and notification systems.


During evacuations and following disasters, toll-free information lines will provide unclassified messages with status and special instructions for MacDill AFB and HQ USCENTCOM.
