The Air Force Personnel Accountability and Assessment System, accessed through a user-friendly website at https://afpaas.af.mil, is designed to help Air Force personnel and their families who are directly affected by major natural and man-made emergency events such as fires, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes and evacuations.
Several evacuation orders remain in effect for certain southeastern locations and for now, personnel should remain at their safe locations until directed to return to their bases. If you are Air Force military or civilian personnel in need of assistance due to Hurricane Dorian, please complete a needs assessment survey on AFPAAS.
AFPAAS requires you to have access to the public Internet, using a personal or public computer or a smartphone with access to the Internet. You may log in using your Common Access Card, username and password or personal information. For assistance, family members can contact the AFPAAS Help Desk at 866-946-9183 (toll-free), 619-553-8167 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are unable to access the AFPAAS website from the link above and require help completing a Needs Assessment survey, please contact AFPC’s Personnel Readiness Center at (210) 565-2020 or toll-free at 800-435-9941. Another option is to complete a PDF-fillable Needs Assessment form. Download it HERE; email submission instructions are on the form. Impacted Airmen can also snap a picture of the form and text it to 210-627-8726. Regardless of the completion method you choose, you will be connected to the A&FRC nearest you within 24 hours for assistance.
If you are NOT listed in AFPAAS as "Affected in the Geographical Area of Impact" by Hurricane Michael but require help completing a Needs Assessment survey, please contact AFPC’s Airman & Family Operations toll-free at 1-866-299-0596.
AFPAAS has two sides: the Personnel Accountability Element and Needs Assessment capability.

I have accounted for my family members and myself. What’s next?
Following an event, an Air Force family may need to fill out a Needs Assessment survey. Completing a needs assessment helps the Air Force know how you are doing and what type of type of assistance, if any, you are requesting. If you indicate you have any needs, an “Event Case” will be automatically created in AFPAAS. Once an Event Case is created, a Case Manager will be assigned to contact and assist you in recovering from the event. Case Managers are provided with the latest benefits information and will work with you over time.
AFPAAS is available to all Air Force-affiliated personnel and their family members. This includes active-duty and select Reserve Airmen, Department of the Air Force and Non-Appropriated Fund civilians, Air Force OCONUS contractors (and their family members). Air Force personnel on temporary duty status, on leave or on a pass in the affected area are encouraged to use AFPAAS as well.
