The Deputy Chief of Staff (DCS), G-1, requires Department of the Army (DA) Civilians to account for themselves and encourages DA Civilians to account for their Family members. DA Civilians will have the opportunity to voluntarily provide Family member information prior to a disaster. Providing Family member information is required to receive needed benefits and/or assistance upon the occurrence of a disaster. Additionally, DA Civilian outside the continental United States (OCONUS) assignments may be contingent upon the Civilian employee voluntarily providing Family member information.
Applicability. This regulation applies to the Active Army, the Army National Guard/Army National Guard of the United States, and the U.S. Army Reserve, unless otherwise stated. Also, it applies to the Army's Total Force Soldiers (Active, Guard, and Reserve) and their Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System enrolled Family members as well as Department of the Army Civilians (appropriated and non-appropriated fund) and their Family members (when those Family members are eligible to receive evacuation entitlements in accordance with the Joint Travel Regulations). When the affected area is outside the continental United States this regulation applies to Armysponsored U.S. contractors and their affected Family members. Any personnel in the previous categories, including separating Army personnel with a remaining service obligation, who are on temporary duty status, leave, or temporarily located in an affected area are required to account for themselves and their Family members. Disaster personnel accountability is not applicable to the following: Army retirees and their Family members; continental United States-based Army-sponsored contractors and Department of Defense contractors supporting the Army; members of the Individual Ready Reserves and their Family members; and foreign nationals working for Department of Defense or the Army.
