Fellow NOAA Corps officers,
Tomorrow marks the beginning of the Atlantic and Central Pacific hurricane season. This is an annual reminder for many of us to revisit our family emergency action plans. Many citizens throughout the country are also dealing with tornados, flooding, wildfires, and a host of other weather conditions that threaten homes and families. I would like to take this opportunity to remind all to prepare for various types of weather events. Preparation, of course, begins at home by replenishing your emergency supplies, knowing your evacuation routes and plans, and learning what risks and hazards may impact your area before and after weather events. Information to help prepare for numerous emergency conditions can be found at ready.gov.
CPC is here to assist in the event of an evacuation. Active duty officers and their dependents residing at the permanent duty station, an alternate location due to assignment to unusually arduous duty, or an approved designated location as specified in a BAH waiver, are authorized travel reimbursement in the event of a mandatory evacuation. This authorization applies to officers on TDY orders as well, and dependents enroute to new PCS location. More information on these entitlements is available in the Joint Travel Regulations - Chapter 6. When an evacuation is ordered for your area, follow instructions of your local emergency management authorities, and contact CPC as soon as possible with your planned evacuation information. To ensure this process runs smoothly, we ask that officers review and update contact information for themselves and their dependents within OPF Online.
Also, I highly encourage officers to log-in and review their NOAA Staff Directory (NSD) information, and update their personal contact information in the Emergency Notification System (ENS) located on the NSD site. To ensure your most recent permanent duty station is reflected in the NSD, submit endorsed PCS orders immediately upon arrival at your new duty station. The NSD is updated monthly with revised billet information once orders are processed, however personal data provided by user can be revised any time. Supervisors should occasionally review their "Direct Reports" list by clicking on the "My Reports" button in the upper right dropdown under their name while logged into the NSD. A list of all staff assigned to you will be provided. For help with the NOAA Staff Directory, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
