MFS Emergency Family Care Plan

Often times, families think they don’t need a family care plan because one person is always at home. A good family care plan ensures that you are ready for any “what if” situation, especially while OUTCAN.
 
An Emergency Family Care Plan (EFCP) is a written document that outlines your family’s needs for regular, back-up and/ or emergency situations. There is a Military Family Care Plan and an MFS Family Care Plan. These are two different documents.  The military plan is mandatory for all members to have on file, please check with your spouse to ensure he/she has completed it.  The MFS plan is family focused and is designed to help a family in need in the least intrusive way possible, so if you are at the hospital you can be assured your child(ren)/pet are being cared for as you wish by the instructions in your plan.
The information requested in the MFS EFCP is more detailed and compliments the Military FCP so that we can better support your family and/or family members should the need arise and is protected in accordance with the Privacy act.
 
Although submitting this form to MFS is entirely optional, MFS does require the MFS EFCP in order to assist your family in the case of an emergency.
