MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- The Navy has issued an order to account for Navy personnel and their families affected by the Colorado wildfires according to a Navy message released June 28.

NAVADMIN 196/12 requires commanders to conduct a personnel accountability muster of all Navy personnel and families in the Colorado counties of El Paso, Douglas, and Teller. Navy figures show approximately 3,100 Navy personnel residing in the affected geographical area.

This order includes active and Reserve component Sailors, Navy government service employees and family members.

Additionally, commanding officers are responsible for ensuring the muster is entered in the Navy Family Accountably and Assessment System (NFASS) at

Individuals who are unable to contact their command should log on to NFAAS and muster on the Navy Family Members' 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, must log into NFAAS at 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) (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.
