Oct. 31, 2018: A Letter from Col. Brian S. Laidlaw, 325th Fighter Wing Commander

Evacuation Order

Evacuation Order

I am authorizing a minimum evacuation distance of 20 miles from Tyndall AFB. As the base moves out of recovery, we look to facilitate a transition to normalcy for some families through enabling you to return to your homes if habitable, a closer commute to facilitate repairs on homes, dependents to return to employment, and children to return to their Bay County schools. 

For Active Duty Military and Dependents: 

-       If working and residing at Tyndall AFB, you are in TDY status and will receive the incidental rate of $5/day.  All meals are available and directed at the DFAC.  If you have dependents residing OUTSIDE of the established 20 mile radius they will continue to receive evacuee entitlements.

-       If working at Tyndall AFB, but residing at your residence either within or outside the 20 mile radius, you will not be in TDY status and you will not receive any entitlements.  If you have dependents residing OUTSIDE of the established 20 mile radius they will continue to receive evacuee entitlements.

-       In both of the above scenarios, if you have dependents residing INSIDE of the established 20 mile radius they will not continue to receive evacuee entitlements.

-       If dependents move safe haven location, they will be required to submit a waiver through the 325th Comptroller Squadron to SAF/MR when they file your voucher. 

For Civilian Employees and Dependents:


-       If working at Tyndall AFB, and residing at a safe haven location OUTSIDE of the established 20 mile radius, you will continue to receive evacuee entitlements and in/around mileage related to performing duties.  If you have dependents residing OUTSIDE of the established 20 mile radius they will continue to receive evacuee entitlements.

-       If working at Tyndall AFB, but residing at your residence, you will not be in evacuation status and you will not receive any entitlements.  If you have dependents residing OUTSIDE of the established 20 mile radius they will continue to receive evacuee entitlements. 

-       In both of the above scenarios, if you have dependents residing INSIDE of the established 20 mile radius they will not continue to receive evacuee entitlements.

-       If you move your safe haven location, you will be required to submit a waiver through the 325th Comptroller Squadron to SAF/MR when you file your voucher. 

The 325th Comptroller will publish further guidance on when/how to submit a travel voucher if you have ended your evacuation by living at your residence.
