    PANAMA CITY, Florida –Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) has begun a program called Operation Home Again (OHA) to establish a resource for personnel recovery from Hurricane Michael.

    OHA Project Managers Cathy Harris and Don Lancaster are leading the effort. The mission of OHA is to provide one location for NSWC PCD employees to access links, obtain answers to questions, and gather information beneficial to them during recovery from Hurricane Michael.

    “Our first concern is people,” said Ed Stewart, NSWC PCD technical director. “Taking care of people, and helping each other where we can, is what makes Panama City a special place to work and live.”

    The resource is intended to increase the flow of information, provide support from both internal and external sources and facilitate an atmosphere of learning, sharing, mutual support, and empowerment.

    “Our leadership is giving us their full support on acquiring and providing assistance with the recovery efforts of our Navy family,” said Harris.

    “We hope this effort, along with all the many ideas and inputs we have been receiving, will expedite our employees’ return to a new sense of normal.”

    Employees can find information on an internal website that includes Bay District School information, childcare options, housing links, Maxi-Flex work schedule, telework guidance and forms, and helpful external support links. There is also a blog area on the site that can be used to start a discussion on topics important to employees.

    Users of the site can select an option to watch a topic or view pages to receive updates when new information is added.

    “The first step in assisting our employees is to have a place for them to find answers,” said Lancaster. “Getting everyone in a secure home where they can move on with their lives is our main goal.”

    Although the site has been changing, it is improving daily as more information becomes available. Personnel are encouraged to ask questions, make recommendations, and suggest other helpful topics and links.
