NEO and emergency evacuation plan

Sponsors and family members are responsible to take an active role in preparation for an evacuation, so that you will be better informed and able to move quickly. Preparation translates to reducing risk to you and your family. You must also understand what the U.S. Government will and will not do for you. The military and the U.S. Embassy will work to notify you of an evacuation order and move you safely and quickly away from danger. They will also attend to your basic needs of food, shelter, transportation and security.
