State Active Duty

Guard personnel may be called

to State Active Duty (SAD) to help communities after a flood, fire, snowstorm

or other natural or man-made disaster. Normally, the Governor of a state or territory declares a

State of Emergency before the National Guard can be brought on State Active Duty. Guard personnel called to State

Active Duty receive pay for each day worked. Each state’s pay is different. If you have questions about State

Active Duty, you can contact your state’s Adjutant General’s Office or each state’s State Active Duty (SAD)

Point of Contact.
