Good afternoon, fellow NOAA Corps officers,
Happy Fiscal New Year! As we enter FY2022, I want to take a moment and talk about your Family Care Plan. Don't have a Family Care Plan or don't know what it is? Don't worry, keep reading as this is an easy thing to develop and could be vitally important.
It is strongly recommended that NOAA Corps officers create and maintain a Family Care Plan with every new assignment to ensure individual readiness. It is recommended that officers establish/ update their plan after a change in family circumstances, or a change in personal status. Family Care Plans are designed to enhance officer and dependent readiness by facilitating the care and support of the officer’s dependent family during planned and unplanned absence of the officer. Basic components of a family care plan include, but are not limited to:
Your Family Care Plan should reside with you and be shared with your family and/or support team; in a safe location that is also readily available. Now is the time to make a plan, when you don't need it, as you don't want a family member scrambling if it ever becomes necessary.
"If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail." -Benjamin Franklin
