Nevada Military Affairs and Civil Emergencies
Sec. § 412.253
Principal assistant: Conditions for assumption of command; qualifications; delegation of authority.


The principal assistant shall assume command in the event of the commanding officers death, prolonged absence or disability.


In the case of the Nevada Air National Guard, the principal assistant may include an officer who lacks an aeronautical rating, as defined in Air Force Instruction 11-402 2.2, as it may be amended or replaced, and is serving in a position immediately subordinate to the convening authority.


Any delegation of authority to a principal assistant must be in writing, unless exigencies prevent such written delegation. If exigencies prevent written delegation, verbal authorization is sufficient and must be reduced to writing as soon as possible thereafter.
