Emergency Preparedness


AFPAAS is the Air Force Personnel Accountability and Assessment System. It is accessed through a user-friendly website 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.



AFPAAS has two sides: the Personnel Accountability Element and Needs Assessment Capability.


Personnel Accountability Element

Enables Air Force leadership and authorities to account accurately for all assigned personnel and their family members, as well as make better decisions in supporting you and your family, maintaining military readiness, and preserving National Security during a disaster.


Allows you to report your current and/or displaced location in the case of an evacuation, and update emergency personal contact information.


Completing the accountability portion of AFPAAS is mandatory when directed by AF leadership; however, it is recommended members and their families provide regular updates as needed.


Needs Assessment Capability   

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.  Knowing this allows the AF to coordinate with applicable agencies in responding to your needs.


The AFPAAS Needs Assessment Capability allows Airman and Family Readiness Case Managers to assist you in recovering from a crisis.



AFPAAS is available to all Air Force affiliated personnel and their family members. This includes active duty, select Reserve, DAF and NAF Civilians, AF OCONUS contractors, and their family members, including personnel on temporary duty status, on leave or on a pass in the affected area.



AFPAAS requires you to have access to the public Internet, using a personal or public computer, or a smartphone with access to the Internet.



To access AFPAAS you will need to go to https://afpaas.af.mil. You may log in using your Common Access Card (CAC), username and password, or personal information.


I Have Accounted for Myself and My Family Members. What is Next?

Following an event, an Air Force family may need to fill out a Needs Assessment survey. If they indicate that they 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 the family in recovering from the event. Case Managers are provided with the latest benefits information, and will work with the family over time.

For more detailed instructions on how to access AFPAAS please utilize the AFPAAS Airman User Guide v.2.0 located in the AFPAAS “Help” tab via the AFPAAS site.
