Noncombatant Evacuation Operations

This site provides you and your noncombatant family members with essential
information should you be required to evacuate from the Sasebo area or Japan
and relocate to the United States or a designated Safe Haven. These
NONCOMBATANT EVACUATION OPERATIONS, often referred to by the acronym NEO,
require advance planning and preparation on the part of all evacuees and
sponsors. Your unit NEO coordinator and/or Warden will be your point of
contact in times of crisis or emergency. They can assist you in filling out
NEO forms as well as provide training to prepare you for an evacuation.

An evacuation could be directed for many reasons. Among these reasons are:

- Increasing military tensions
- Natural Disaster (earthquake, tropical cyclone (typhoon) or volcanic
eruption)
- Orderly withdrawal of forces/personnel from overseas locations

In times of crisis or danger, the U. S. Department of State will decide when
to evacuate noncombatants. In the event of an evacuation order, Commander,
Fleet Activities Sasebo and individual unit Commanding Officers and Officers
in Charge are responsible for ensuring that sponsors have prepared their
family members to be evacuated/relocated in an efficient and orderly manner.
