When you have a son or daughter serving in the military there is a protocol you follow in case of emergency (death or serious illness in the family, etc.). They cannot just leave as if they were at a regular university. If your family faces an emergency such as this, the Naval Academy will do everything they can to make sure your Mid is notified in a humane and caring manner. It is possible that your Mid will be allowed to come home, depending on the situation.Download Business Card Sized List of USNA Emergency Contacts
Here are some important phone numbers to keep handy:
Main Office Bancroft Hall: 1-410-293-5001 – In the event of an emergency you can always contact Main Office and they will route your call accordingly. This number is manned 24 hours a day, and should be your first contact.
USNA Command Duty Officer cellphone: 1-443-569-2180 – Use this number only if for some reason the Main Office Bancroft Hall number does not work.
Chaplains Center: 1-410-293-1100 – This is your second option, as it is not manned 24 hours a day, but they can help with sensitive or confidential matters.
Red Cross: 1-877-272-7337 – They will help to verify death with hospitals or funeral homes, to assist USNA in granting leave. For more information: http://www.redcross.org/news/article/How-to-Contact-a-Service-Member-in-an-Emergency
