Individuals who are unable to contact their command should log on to NFAAS and muster on the Navy Family Member’s section. Impacted personnel unable to contact their command or the NFAAS website can call the NFASS Help Desk at (866) 946-9183.
Navy personnel and families who are severely impacted may log into NFAAS at https://navyfamily.navy.mil to update contact information and complete a needs assessment survey at their earliest convenience. Affected personnel can contact the Navy Personnel Command (NPC) Emergency Coordination Center (ECC) at (877) 414-5358 for further assistance once their needs assessment survey is submitted.
NFAAS standardizes a method for the Navy to account, manage, and monitor the recovery process for personnel and their families affected and/or scattered by a wide-spread catastrophic event.
