All Tyndall assigned personnel to evacuate

TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- Tyndall Air Force Base officials have underscored the importance of the mandatory hurricane evacuation order issued earlier today.

“It’s important to know that this order applies to all Tyndall assigned military personnel regardless if they live on base or not,” said Col. Jefferson Hawkins, 325th Fighter Wing vice commander. “People are our most important resource and we’re committed to protecting them.”

The use of government-issued credit cards has been authorized by the 325th Fighter Wing commander for expenses incurred during this evacuation. Finance will reimburse all Tyndall assigned military members for an evacuation of at least 100 miles, but no more than 500 miles, from Tyndall AFB.

If members do not have a government travel card, a cash advance is available from finance with a DoD I.D. card and evacuation orders.

Details on financial reimbursement and frequently asked questions are posted on the Tyndall website at https://www.tyndall.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/1656663/tyndall-mandatory-evacuation-fact-sheet-and-faqs/.

Additional information will be posted to the Tyndall Hurricane page at http://www.tyndall.af.mil/Hurricane/ and the Tyndall Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/325FWTyndall/.

The mandatory evacuation order was effective beginning at 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 8. All Tyndall assigned personnel, including those in Tyndall base housing, must be off the installation no later than 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9.
