ADPAAS Update Due
On 19 April 2022 the below message was sent out asking each Garrison Soldier and DA Civilian to verify/update their ADPAAS information. As of 25 May 2022, only 16% of Garrison personnel have done this. IMCOM has now set a suspense date of 10 June 2022 to accomplish this tasker. If you have not already done so, please follow the instructions in the original email below and verify/update your ADPAAS information. The Army Disaster Personnel Accountability and Assessment System (ADPAAS) is about to begin its 2022 Hurricane and Wildfire Season on 1 June 2022. With the number of natural disasters that have occurred in the United States in the last few years, accountability for our Army personnel, Military, Civilian, or Contractor, and their family members is extremely important. When an event starts, any sponsor or family member that are listed in ADPAAS as having a home/living in an affected area will be required to account for themselves to the command under which they are assigned in ADPAAS. That is why it is extremely important to ensure the information that is listed in ADPAAS is as accurate as possible. Lessons learned from the 2021 Hurricane and Wildfire season highlight a need for accurate and timely disaster personnel accountability. The Army’s goal is to reach 100% disaster personnel accountability via ADPAAS within 72 hours from the start of an ADPASS Event. With that in mind; please log onto the ADPAAS website at HTTPS://ADPAAS.ARMY.MIL and ensure all information under the My Info tab is accurate and complete. Please do the same for each one of your family members as well listed in ADPAAS. You can also go to ID Card Office Online at https://idco-pki.dmdc.osd.mil/idco/ and update your information under My Profile. This information feeds directly into ADPAAS and can be updated that way as well. All Family members listed in DEERS will display in ADPAAS so if you have a Family member that is not showing up in ADPAAS, please check with your DEERS office to update your profile. For any questions or concerns please contact your Command Officer Representative for your UIC. If you do not know who that is, you can find their information in ADPAAS under My Info, COR List.
