Medical Emergency Contact Roster
The Marine Medicine Branch (MMB) will provide ships an updated list of the Medical Emergency Contacts biannually. Ships should post the current list on the bridge, in the medical treatment space, and throughout the ship in operational spaces. The list contains the emergency cell phone numbers for the on call medical officers at both marine centers. Ships should call the appropriate marine center medical officer for most medical issues that occur at sea. The list also provides emergency cell phone numbers for the diving medical officer and mental health medical officer. Ships should contact these officers when the emergency involves a decompression injury or a psychological crisis. The contact information for use during medical emergencies can be found on the bridge of every ship. Commanding Officers, Executive Officers, and the medical persons in charge and/or medical officers aboard have this Medical Emergency Contact Roster at hand.
