(NNS) -- Off-duty accidents and illnesses were among the leading causes of death for Sailors in calendar year 2011, said a Navy official March 9."As service members, we usually remember to update our emergency data prior to a deployment or individual augmentee assignment," said Hospital Corpsman 1st Class Dana Swope, leading petty officer and licensed mortician, Navy and Marine Corps Mortuary Affairs."The PADD is the individual the Sailor appoints to oversee arrangements after their death and whom we will take our direction from in fulfilling the Sailor's final wishes," said Swope.According to Swope, the Page 2 and Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI) forms are among the first documents the Navy will turn to in the event a Sailor is very seriously injured or dies.However, leaks of service member deaths through social media have been fairly well contained.When a service member dies in a combat zone, the entire area of operation goes into what is called “River City.” River City is military jargon for a communications status, “Reduced Communications,” which is a total blackout of any and all non-operationally oriented communication assets."Unfortunately, we sometimes find out when we need to notify family members of injury or the death of a service member, that the information [in the Page 2 and SGLI] is outdated or incomplete which hampers the notification process," said Swope.
This circumvention of the casualty notification process can result in the next of kin being informed when they are alone and without any answers or explanations from military officials.
"Non-combat related incidents such as car accidents, happen daily so we should get in the practice of verifying our records at a minimum of twice a year." Sailors must keep their Record of Emergency Data (DD form 93) and Dependency Application Record of Emergency Data (NAVPERS 1070/602 also known as your Page 2) updated with their primary and secondary next-of-kin upon marriage, divorce, the birth of a child or any other significant life changing event.
During a Page 2 update, Sailors should identify a person authorized to direct disposition (PADD) of the deceased.
All family members, including children ages 10 and older, will need their own ID cards.
Your card will allow you access to military bases, exchanges, and commissaries, and will make you eligible to receive a medical card. You can do this through the Security Office on base.
The Navy has a Bedside program that allows up to three family members to be present at an injured service member's bedside should the injury be sufficient enough to warrant it.
