Deployment Support

Family Deployment Support

Deployment is a stressful time and the Fleet and Family Service Center (FFSC) strives to make this time less difficult for the individuals, commands and families involved. It is advised that spouse’s attend a pre-deployment briefing with the service member so all aspects of deployment can be covered.  Contact information in the Navy Family Accountability and Assesment System  (NFAAS) must also be checked to insure we are able to contact you during deployment and in the event of an emergency.

Services and Support Groups available includePost Deployment Family Readiness Conferences available on an as needed basis, as requested by commands or individuals.  

The FFSC in coordination with the local installation elementary school district is implementing support groups for children of IA's. Family Support group functions and meetings occur quarterly.  Pre and post deployment briefs are also available on a walk in basis at the FFSC, Bldg 26.

For specific times, dates and functions contact the FFSC at 1-888-231-0714 ext. 100.
