Military Life Skills
Life doesn’t come with an instruction book.
To help active duty military members (single and married) and their family enhance their effectiveness at home or work, Fleet and Family Support Centers' professional counselors and educators offer Life Skills services and programs that foster good relations, healthy families, and strong marriages.
- FFSC provides training and support for spouses to prepare them for their responsibilities and acquaint them with military and community resources.
- Opportunities are also provided for networking and problem-solving with peers.
When an emergency strikes, knowing what to do can save lives, property, and time. One of the most important tools you or your family can have to protect yourself in possible emergencies is a Family Emergency Plan. It is important to plan ahead as a family for all types of emergencies and responses. Everyone in the family should understand what to do, where to go, and what to take in the event of an emergency. Learn how to prepare, respond, and recover with Fleet & Family Support Center's Operation Prepare public awareness program.
