Noncombatant Evacuation Operations (NEO)

 NEOs are the "ordered: (mandatory) or "authorized" (voluntary) departure of civilian noncombatants (and in rare situations nonessential military personnel) to a designated "safe haven." Evacuations from Okinawa could be triggered by a variety of circumstances, including civil unrest, military uprisings, environmental concerns, or natural disasters.

NEO Training: Click on the Okinawa NEO Training link to access Okinawa's NEO training site.

    NEO Kits: Your NEO kit includes a NEO packet (documents and checklists) and a NEO bag (items to bring with you in the event of an evacuation). As soon as you arrive on Okinawa, you MUST complete a NEO packet and should prepare a NEO bag. 

    Okinawa's NEO plans are harmonized among all the military services on Okinawa. Consequently, NEO Packets on Okinawa are unique compared to many parts of the world. Do not expect NEO packets from previous duty stations to meet Okinawa's unique requirements.

    NEO Kits are comprised of a NEO bag and six-part NEO Packet. A NEO Packet with a NEO Preparedness Cover Letter and blank forms will be provided to you by your Evacuation Preparedness Officer when you arrive on Okinawa.
