Team Eglin's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program mission: Provide response, victim advocacy, case management, and sexual assault awareness, prevention and response training to the Team Eglin and Arnold Air Force Base population.
Help is just a phone call away: If you have been sexually assaulted, please call the Team Eglin 24/7 SARC Response Helpline at (850) 240-3219, (850) 882-SARC (7272) or DSN 872-7272.
Additionally, DOD has set up a 24-hour hotline at 1-800-342-9647 for geographically separated military personnel as well. Military members who access the DOD hotline will be referred to the nearest Sexual Assault Response Coordinator's office for assistance. You may also e-mail the Team Eglin SARC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have been, or think you have been, sexually assaulted:
1. Go to a safe location away from the perpetrator.
2. Preserve all evidence of the assault. Do not bathe, wash your hands or brush your teeth. If you are still where the crime occurred, do not clean, or straighten up, or remove anything from the crime scene.
3. Contact a Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) or Victim Advocate (VA).
