Question / Answer

Question:
What emergency contact numbers should I be aware of?

Answer:
The most obvious emergency contact numbers to have readily available are the local police, fire, ambulance, and perhaps the local hospital emergency room numbers. These numbers are accessible in most community phone books. Your local Army Community Service (ACS) can also provide them for you. In CONUS, "911" is the number to call for true emergencies. Find out what the equivalent emergency number is (if any) if you live overseas. Several other numbers that may be helpful to have on hand in the event of an emergency are: your Family Readiness Group (FRG) leader or an FRG contact, your Soldier's unit number (or Rear Detachment Commander’s number, if your Soldier is deployed), the number(s) for a close friend or relative - which could be very useful in the event that you become incapacitated and someone else needs to contact a friend or family member on your behalf.

Question:
Where can I find my nearest local CONUS medical center?

Answer:
Contact your regional TRICARE Contracting representative to locate the authorized Medical Treatment Facilities (MTF) that are within your community.

Question:
Where can I obtain rape victim assistance?

Answer:
If you or someone you know is a victim of sexual assault, contact your local or military police for immediate attention. They can also put you in touch with your community's Victim Advocacy program. Each military community either has its own Victim Advocacy program or is affiliated with one in the local civilian community that can assist you with shelter, counseling and legal advice. Several crisis hotlines and websites for victims of sexual assault are: National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-SAFE), National Coalition Against Sexual Assault (717-728-9764) and Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (1-800-656-HOPE; online at http://www.rainn.org) and the National Women's Health Information Center at http://www.4woman.gov/faq/sexualassault.htm.

Question:
Who do I contact for on-post housing emergencies?

Answer:
Your military community housing office should have an emergency number for you to call after normal business hours for emergencies. Check your military community phone book or call the Post Operator, if necessary, to obtain this number.
