NASP welcomes newest chief petty officers By MC3 Taylor L. Jackson Center for Information Warfare Training Public Affairs

Forty-two Sailors from Pensacola-area commands donned their chief petty officer (CPO) anchors during pinning ceremonies at Naval Air Station Pensacola Sept. 16. The pinning ceremony concluded CPO 365 Phase II training, which began when the CPO selectees were announced. Families, friends and shipmates joined the selectees as they officially put on the coveted gold fouled anchors of a chief petty officer. “During the course of the last several weeks, our chief selects have received a tremendous amount of training,” said ITC Brian Hamel, master of ceremonies for the Navy Information Operations Command (NIOC) Pensacola and Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station pinning ceremony. “Over the course of six weeks they have been tested, and we are here today to lay testament to their success and finalize their completion of CPO 365 Phase II into a most exclusive fellowship: the chief petty officer mess.” For CTNC Ben Shady, the ceremony was a reminder of the hard work it takes for a Sailor to

reach this level of achievement. “It’s been a fun ride,” said Shady. “It’s been 11 years since I joined to get to this point. It doesn’t matter where you start, it’s how you finish.” Retired Force Master Chief, Chief of Naval Reserve, Chris Glennon, who spoke at Naval Air Technical Training Center’s ceremony, remarked on how these young men and women are the subject matter experts, particularly for those involved in the training mission. “They have been instructors, they know the platforms, they know the weapons systems,” said Glennon. “Now they need to embrace the ability to lead, to take care of other problems, to be in a leadership role. They are expected to step up and be more well-rounded and deal with whatever the problem is.” After all the newly-appointed chiefs were pinned at the IWTC Corry Station and NIOC Pensacola ceremony, the entire Chiefs Mess led the audience in singing “Anchors Aweigh” before joining their family and friends for a reception. “Being a chief petty officer is like no other feeling in the world,” said CTTC Jeremy Wilson. “All the emotions (at the ceremony) are real, and it’s definitely well-deserved.” HMC Ophael Myrtil, Naval

NETC embraces importance of suicide prevention By Enid Wilson Naval Education and Training Public Affairs

Military and civilian staff from Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) participated in suicide prevention training aboard Naval Air Station NAS Pensacola Sept. 13. In 2012, the Department of the Navy declared September as Suicide Prevention Month and each year military and

civilian personnel are challenged to find ways to openly communicate about suicide prevention and foster a culture that views seeking assistance as a sign of strength. Bryan Glazier, a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) and licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) from NAS Pensacola Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC), provided the

training. “Suicide has devastating effects that ripple from the individual’s family and friends, to their colleagues, and their commands,” Glazier said “It is imperative that we all do our part in trying to help and assist our colleagues and friends who may be struggling, and this training helps to bring a greater awareness to suicide prevention.”

Rear Adm. Mike White, commander Naval Education and Training Command, attended the training with his staff, and emphasized the importance of being proactive. “If we understand how each individual plays a role in suicide prevention, we can recognize and take action when a shipmate or co-worker needs support,” said White. “The more we train See Prevention on page 2

Naval Air Station Pensacola participated in the annual International Coastal Cleanup Sept. 17. NASP has participated in this event for more than 20 years, and each year has been a success. Even with the threat of stormy

weather, 60 volunteers showed up to help clean up the beaches of NASP. The NASP volunteers were able to pick up 1,450 pounds of trash during this year’s coastal cleanup. Among those 1,450 pounds of trash, almost 500 cigarette butts were See Cleanup on page 2

CIWT modernizes Electronic Warfare Officer Course By MC3 Taylor L. Jackson Center for Information Warfare Training Public Affairs

Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) wrapped up the first updated Electronic Warfare Officer (EWO) Course at Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) San Diego, Sept. 16, as part of a training modernization effort for electronic warfare (EW). “We saw that the course needed a change in both the information

being presented and the format in which we presented it,” said CTTC Christopher Love, IWTC San Diego course supervisor and instructor. “We reviewed and revamped all the lessons so that they reflect the most current information the fleet has to offer. “ The EWO course of instruction is designed to provide naval officers serving as EWOs and senior CWO3 Dane Beichter teaches stucryptologic technician (technical) dents attending the updated ElecSee EWO on page 2

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Christopher T. Martin Public Affairs Officer — Patrick J. Nichols The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.

The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing,

Ask, Care, Treat: No one is immune from suicide By Lt. Holly Black Suicide Prevention Coordinator, Naval Hospital Pensacola

I

t’s been three years, but I remember it like it was yesterday. My night shift just started and I received the reports on my patients. I was sitting at the nurse’s station reviewing orders when the phone rang and my co-worker answered it. I heard, “Ens. Black, sure. Wait one, please.” I reached over and took the phone and said, “This is Ens. Black, can I help you?” A quiet voice said, “Holly, (she)’s gone. (She) killed herself.” I’m the suicide prevention coordinator for Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP). I had been on active duty almost two years when a fellow ensign and nurse, my happy-gorunning buddy, lucky committed suicide. I had completed several suicide prevention trainings in person and online, but nothing prepared me for the pain and guilt that I felt. Why did she do it? What did I miss? Could I have said something to change her mind? Three years later, I still ask myself these questions. Hindsight is 20/20. The signs were there. When our

How to submit a commentary

ensign group went out together, I thought it was a little strange that she drank more than the rest of us. I chalked it up to her growing up in a small town. She was young and legal, so why not let loose a little bit? At work, she seemed disorganized, but time management is a skill that takes time to master as a new nurse. She just needed a little more time to get things down pat, right? I couldn’t believe what I was hearing when I took the phone call that night at work. I asked, “Are you serious?” I wanted to know more details. The phone call came from a fellow nurse, a co-worker, who had been spending a lot of time with her recently. When I got off the phone, my charge nurse asked me if everything was okay. It was when I verbalized what had

happened to someone else that I burst into tears. After sitting down with the nurse of the day, my charge nurse sent me home. Instead of going home, I went to the home of one of my best friends, a fellow Navy nurse with whom I attended college. She lived in the same apartment complex as my friend and shared in our love of running. For a while, we cried. Then, we sat in silence. As the night passed, we talked, we shared favorite memories

and then we asked ourselves the same questions I mentioned before. A few days later, I was scheduled to drive to an upcoming race we had been training for together. Instead, I was donning my dress blue uniform as her remains made their journey home. At NHP, we provide training to all incoming personnel during command orientation and thereafter on an annual basis. We make our resources known – mental health, chaplain services and Fleet and

Family Support Center. We ensure that our watch standers know who to call when someone is experiencing a crisis. We encourage our leaders to take their training a step further through SafeTALK workshops and Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training. During September, Suicide Prevention Month, we do our best to spread awareness and also celebrate those we have lost. The fact is that no one is immune to suicide. We must take care of ourselves and each other. ASK. CARE. TREAT. Every Sailor, every day. Established in 1826, NHP’s mission is to provide patient centered superior quality health care to those it serves.

Suicide prevention: We have power to make a difference By The Honorable Franklin R. Parker Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Manpower and Reserve Affairs

T

he American Association of Sociology began to recognize the week of Sept. 10 as National Suicide Prevention Week in 1974. In 2012, we first recognized September as the Department of the Navy’s first Suicide Prevention Month, with the goal of educating our team and fostering a culture that recognizes seeking assistance as a sign of strength. The department continues to develop, evolve and provide evidence-based training, support programs, guidance and policy to help reduce suicidal behaviors by promoting early intervention addressing mental health and stress factors. You are the driving force behind prevention. Our Navy and Marine Corps team is the world’s greatest expeditionary fighting force. From the deepest trenches of the Pacific Ocean to the snow-capped mountains of Afghanistan, our Department of the Navy team remains steadfast in its determination to support our allies and defend the United States of America. I want every Sailor, Marine and civilian who supports our team to know – you make a difference. You make a difference for our nation and allies at sea, in the air, on the battlefield, and in all our support activities. You also make a difference in the lives of your colleagues, your peers, and your families through the unheralded roles you play every day as critical elements of their personal support networks. You are known for your excellence and for your intense focus on accomplishing the mission, which is part of the reason for your tremendous reputation and success. You place the mission above all else, sometimes even above your own emotional health. In this context of service before self, it is important to understand that asking for personal help does not equate to weakness or to a lack of mission focus. Seeking help when needed and supporting each other during times of personal crisis only makes us stronger – not just as individuals, but as a force. This display of strength can be extremely difficult, which is precisely why it is such a courageous action to take. By seeking support during your most difficult times, you help to ensure

you are at your best for your families, your teams, and to meet the mission. By seeking the support of others when you are in need, you make yourself and others stronger; even if personally you may feel anything but strong at that given moment. By surviving that moment, however, you emerge that much more prepared for what challenges may lie ahead, armed with the knowledge that you can and will endure. Similarly, there is no greater service we can provide than to be

fairs, and their teams have done a terrific job developing programs that educate, raise awareness, and strengthen the resilience of Sailors and Marines. Whether it’s “1 Small Act” or “Protect What You’ve Earned,” our services continue to evolve and strengthen how we support our forces and our families. Additionally, the department offers Sailors, Marines, civilians, and their families a number of tools at their disposal, including chaplains, counselors, health care providers, family support programs, and even nutrition and fitness experts. It’s important every member of our team understands we are committed to you, both during your service and beyond, because you are our greatest asset.

Navy’s most advanced warship, USS Zumwalt, arrives in Norfolk By PCU Zumwalt Public Affairs

N

ORFOLK, Va. (NNS) – The Navy's newest and most technologically advanced surface ship, future USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000) pulled into Naval Station Norfolk Sept. 14 for another port visit on the three-month journey to its new homeport in San Diego, Calif. Crewed by 147 Sailors, Zumwalt is the lead ship of a class of next-generation multimission destroyers designed to strengthen naval power. They are capable of performing critical maritime missions and enhance the Navy’s ability to provide deterrence, power projection and sea control. Capt. James A. Kirk, Zumwalt’s commanding officer, commented on the significance of the ship’s visit to Norfolk. “It is a great opportunity to bring Zumwalt to Norfolk, an area steeped in naval history and ever vital to the U.S. Navy,” said Kirk. “It is a chance for the Sailors of Zumwalt to show their Atlantic Coast shipmates the teamwork, technical expertise and toughness it takes to operate a Zumwalt-class destroyer.” While in Norfolk, Zumwalt is scheduled to perform operational proficiency training, certifications and preparation for its October commissioning. “Training is the foundation

of every operation we perform in the Navy, and it is our job to ensure we use the time in Norfolk to get as much quality training as we can. Successful training pays dividends for Sailors out at sea,” said Kirk. Zumwalt departed Newport, R.I., Sept. 12 following a weekend of visits from students of several Navy schools, including the Naval War College, and distinguished government and military visitors. “Our first ever port visit was to Newport, or the U.S. Navy’s surface warfare center of gravity, where we were able to host tours and give our schoolhouse surface warfare officers and other distinguished guests a look at the future of the surface fleet,” said Kirk. USS Zumwalt will be formally commissioned during Fleet Week Maryland in Baltimore, Oct. 15. “Each day that passes is one step closer to commissioning and one step closer to joining the fleet. The crew is ready to face the challenges in the com-

The guided-missile destroyer Pre-Commissioning Unit (PCU) Zumwalt (DDG 1000) departs from Naval Station Newport, R.I., following its maiden voyage from Bath Iron Works Shipyard in Bath, Maine. The port visit marked Zumwalt’s first stop before the ship ultimately sails to her new homeport of San Diego, Calif. During the transit, the ship is scheduled to take part in training operations, a commissioning ceremony in Baltimore, Md., and various additional port visits.

Upon arrival in San Diego, she is scheduled to take part in a post delivery availability and mission systems activation and is expected to be integrated into the fleet in 2018 following test and evaluation.

DDG 1000 will be the first U.S. Navy combatant surface ship to utilize an integrated power system (IPS) to provide electric power for propulsion and ship services. The IPS generates approximately 78 megawatts of power, nearly what a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier generates, to meet the

total ship electric power requirements and provide extra capacity to accommodate future weapons and computing systems. In addition to its advanced weapon and propulsion systems, Zumwalt is much larger than today’s destroyers. At 610 feet long and 80.7 feet wide, Zumwalt is 100 feet longer and 13 feet wider, and its flight deck is 93 percent larger than an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer. Stealthy, powerful, and lethal, Zumwalt’s integration into the fleet will provide a vital link from the Navy’s current needs to its future capabilities.

Flight student creates aviation-themed comic strip By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

C

harlie Brown, Garfield, Calvin & Hobbes, Beetle Bailey – the familiar names immediately bring a smile to people’s faces as they remember the outlandish exploits and everyday humor the characters brought to newspaper readers day in and day out. Now, Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) and Training Air Wing Five team members can enjoy the same reaction to Max and Grey as they muddle their way through flight training in an online comic called “The Landing Strip.” aThe “Strip” has been running on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/LandingStripComic/) since June 2015. Student naval aviator Ens. Zach Morris has drafted and produced more than 70 segments so far. Poking fun at the youthfulness and inexperience of student aviators, the craftiness of instructors, and the rigors of academic and practical aviation training, he developed a comic that has gradual picked up a significant following in the student aviator community. With more than 3,000 likes on Facebook, his artwork has garnered far more attention than he ever expected. “I thought I would do a few, people would chuckle, and it would be over,” Morris said. “The following continued growing, so I kept it up.” Morris started the project as a way to help deal with the stress

during flight training. He created the first strip during his four weeks of API training and has generally done about one per week ever since. Every so often a fellow student will suggest a topic or a joke, but most of the original ideas have come from Morris’ imagination. “I deal with my stress through humor,” he stated as he emphasized that the comic’s views often mirror his own sarcastic wit. “Most of the jokes just come from my mind wandering and thinking ‘How would it be funny for someone learning to fly?’ ” As a former arts major at Franklin College in Indiana and a zoo caricaturist, Morris’ background is more than just doodling. He studied scenic backdrops and stage design while in school and with a grandmother who is a talented painter, he loved art from almost

the very beginning. However, as he started seeking a little more security in his life, he remembered his father speaking about how he wished he would have continued serving in the military following his four-year Navy hitch in the 1980s. His high school best friend, who is currently serving in the military, steered him toward aviation. Having successfully navigated his way through API and primary education, Morris is now firmly engaged in learning the intricacies of rotary-winged aviation with Helicopter Training Squadron 28 at NAS Whiting Field. “The Landing Strip” is beginning to reflect his new assignment as his latest offerings have dealt with the ideas of chair flying, auto rotations, and helicopter simulations. One of his strips even provided a glimpse of the greatest chair flying pilot of all time – Snoopy and his fa-

mous Sopwith Camel. Such guest appearances are not common in the comic, but Morris enjoys capturing aspects of entertainment in his work. He even did a sequence of Star Wars themed strips as the premiere of “The Force Awakens” neared. “I like to take movies and other pop culture and compare it to training and to flight students. Most of the comics are pretty specific to flight training, and I think it makes it more relatable for other people.” Morris emphasized, that for him, “laughing at the stress” of flight school is his motivation. He grew up enjoying comic strips, but couldn’t remember ever seeing one about aviation, and it turned out to be a way to take a break from his intensive studies. Dilbert’s sarcastic humor, the energy of Calvin & Hobbes, and growing up with Garfield (Jim Davis was also

from Indiana) are influences he credits for his passion in the work. Serial strips like those were a significant presence for Morris as he was growing up and he still enjoys the process of telling a story through the three- and four-frame artwork he drafts when flight training provides a brief respite. This is his first attempt at a comic strip and he said that the biggest challenge (aside from time) is the brevity required to tell a joke in just three panels. It is a challenge he has enjoyed even more than expected. Morris emphatically stated that he hopes to continue producing the strip. “As long as people continue to enjoy ‘The Landing Strip,’ I will continue to do it,” he said. “Right now, I just want to make it to 100 strips, but so long as the job permits me, I plan to keep up with it.”

What can YOU do?

eld each October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is a time to celebrate the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities. The theme for this year – which marks 71 years since the first observance – is “Inclusion Works.”

H

“By fostering a culture that embraces individual differences, including disabilities, businesses profit by having a wider variety of tools to confront challenges,” said Jennifer Sheehy, deputy assistant secretary of labor for disability employment policy. “Our nation’s most successful companies proudly make inclusion a core value. They know that inclusion works. It works for workers, it works for employers, it works for opportunity, and it works for innovation.” Observed in October, NDEAM is a nationwide campaign celebrating the skills and talents workers with disabilities bring to our workplaces. Led nationally by ODEP, NDEAM’s true spirit lies in the many grass-

roots observances held nationwide every year. Each spring, the theme for each year’s celebration is announced to help organizations and groups plan their events. ODEP created this year’s theme with input from a wide variety of its partner organizations, including those representing employers, people with disabilities and their families, and federal, state and local agencies. The hope is that the hashtag theme spurs both individuals and groups to post images and stimulate discussion on social media about the many ways “inclusion works.” NDEAM’s history dates back to 1945, when Congress declared the first week in October

each year as National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week. In 1962, the word “physically” was dropped to acknowledge individuals with all types of disabilities. In 1988, the federal legislature expanded the week to a month and changed the name to NDEAM. When the department established ODEP in 2001, the agency assumed responsibility for NDEAM. For more information about NDEAM, including specific ideas for how different types of organizations can participate, visit www.dol.gov/ndeam. ODEP’s mission is to develop and influence policies and practices to increase the number and quality of employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

From http://www.whatcanyoudocampaign.org

You can support the Campaign for Disability Employment’s (CDE) “What can YOU do?” initiative and play an important role in improving employment outcomes for people with disabilities. “What can YOU do?” is a positive outreach initiative aimed at increasing the employment rate of people with disabilities by challenging common misperceptions. It sends a clear message: people with disabilities want to work and their talents and abilities benefit businesses both financially and organizationally. By implementing good workplace practices, such as maintaining a flexible and inclusive work environment, businesses can capitalize on the talents of qualified people with disabilities. All it takes is recognizing the value they add to the workplace and fostering a work culture welcoming of the talents of all individuals. Three things you can do: 1. Hire, retain and advance people with disabilities. Businesses that are inclusive of people with disabilities – in hiring, retention and advancement – benefit from a wider pool of talent, skills and creative business solutions. Additionally, fostering a work environment that is flexible and open to the talents of all qualified individuals, including those with disabilities, actually promotes workplace success for everyone. 2. Be a mentor. Be a mentor by inspiring youth with disabilities to achieve their career aspirations. It is important that each individual is valued for his or her skills and talents, and that youth with disabilities are supported and encouraged to dream big when it comes to developing career goals. 3. Share the “can-do” spirit. Help us by telling others about the CDE and the “What can YOU do?” initiative. We encourage you to promote positive employment outcomes for people with disabilities in your business and community.

Sponsored by Pen Air Federal Credit Union and Navy Federal Credit Union, the yearly event honored 22 spouses from area commands, who were chosen not only for their dedication to the military and their own families but also to the wider Pensacola community. WEAR TV-3 news anchor Sue Straughn introduced each of the honorees as they came forward to receive gift bags from both credit unions, an appreciation letter from U.S. Rep. Jess Miller and an engraved crystal plaque from the Pensacola Navy League. event’s featured The speaker, Rebecca Bernacchi, spouse of Blue Angel “Boss” Cmdr. Ryan Bernacchi, spoke to the audience of about 165 gathered at the New World Landing Spanish Room. Her description of military spouses was made with both humor and

poignancy. Military spouses often make great sacrifices, she said, both personally and professionally as they move around the world, support other spouses, and care for their homes and families. Often alone, they, too, support their commands and become an invaluable part of their local communities. Spouses, Bernacchi said, possess “a resiliency that only another military spouse can truly understand.” She concluded her remarks with the words, “I am proud to be one of you, proud to be a military spouse.”

Taste of the Beach showcases the variety of seafood dishes served at Pensacola Beach restaurants.

Story, photo from Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce

Florida seafood will be on the menu tomorrow, Sept. 24, at the ninth annual Taste of the Beach, presented by the Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce at the Gulfside Pavilion on Pensacola Beach. The festival showcases Pensacola Beach restaurants and unique coastal cuisine. Throughout the day, attendees will get a chance to sample signature dishes from 18 beach restaurants while viewing the live chef demonstrations and cooking competitions. The featured guests, five Pensacola celebrity chefs, will be on stage at the Gulfside Pavilion at 1 p.m. Sept. 24 for a cooking demonstration and a question-and-answer session. Dan Dunn of H2O at the Hilton Pensacola Beach Gulf Front will be preparing oyster

stew; Irv Miller of Jackson’s will present Steakhouse smoked mullet dip; Jim Shirley of The Fish House will make seafood Thai molee; Gus Silivos of Skopelos at New World will present grilled octopus with sun-roasted tomatoes and hummus; and Frank Taylor of Global Grill will whip up a seafood ceviche. Following the demonstration, festival-goers with prepurchased wristbands can sample the creations. A limited number of wristbands are available for $20 at www.tasteof pensacolabeach.com. Other activities will include a “Chef’s Challenge” between eight area chefs at 11 a.m. Each chef will have 30 minutes to prepare a seafood dish incorporating a surprise mystery ingredient. In an effort to educate the public and help raise awareness, each chef will incorporate lionfish. Lionfish are a non-native and invasive species that pose a

threat to local marine life. “Lionfish is a very mild, sweet and flaky white fish and can be prepared a number of different ways,” said Nicole Stacey, president of the Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce. “We think this is a perfect opportunity to not only showcase the talent and creativity of our chefs, but also educate the public about lionfish.” New to the event this year is a team cook off, which is scheduled to start at noon. The festival also will feature live music. The Lectrik Mullet band will entertain the crowd with cover tunes starting at 3 p.m. Musician Tim Spencer will perform from 5 to 7 p.m. The 1980s glam-rock cover band, The Molly Ringwalds, will close out the festival with a free concert at 7 p.m. For more information, go to www.tasteofpensacolabeach. com.

If you are a victim of sexual assault, it is not your fault. Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away: The SafeHelpline provides live, one-on-one crisis support and information by trained staff. Call: (877) 995-5247; click: www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247, CONUS; (202) 470-5546, OCONUS (may be extra charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to non-intimate partner adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services, safety interventions and/or transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim may report to his/her chain-ofcommand, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC, or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim may disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care professional and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 449-9231/2. For the Civilian Victim Advocate, call 293-4561. To contact the duty SARC, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
