Emergency Management



 
Emergency management is the organization and management of the resources and responsibilities for dealing with all humanitarian aspects of emergencies (prevention, preparedness, response, mitigation, and recovery). The aim is to prevent and reduce the harmful effects of all hazards, including disasters.
 

Tropical Cyclone Condition of Readiness (TCCOR)

Typhoon Season for CFAY runs from June 1st through October 31st. CFAY's default posture of readiness during Typhoon Season is TCCOR 5. 

Tropical Cyclone Condition of Readiness or TCCOR levels shift as a typhoon approaches. Knowing what each TCCOR stage means can help you better prepare for an approaching storm.

You can receive condition of readiness updates on CFAY's Facebook page, our Base Information Channel 45.1, and Computer Desktop Notification System aka CDNS (registration is required). You can find instructions on how to register for CDNS further down this page. You can also get weather-related information from Naval Oceanography Antisubmarine Warfare Center Yokosuka's website https://www.metoc.navy.mil/noacy/index.html, Weather Channel 45.2, and AFN's Eagle 810.
Don't underestimate typhoon season and get caught off-guard. You are strongly encouraged to strengthen emergency planning at home and at work. Ready Navy https://www.ready.navy.mil/ has some great resources and information you can use as well as a page dedicated to making an at home emergency kit. https://www.ready.navy.mil/Build-a-Kit/
