Transcript of Preparing for Deployment

So you are preparing for an upcoming Deployment.
The first step is to visit us at the MFRC.

Why visit the MFRC ?
We are here to provide supports to the military members and their community during all phases of deployment.

From mission updates, staying in touch services, short term counseling, workshops to free respite childcare and social activities, there is something for everyone.

Where are we located
We have two locations in Greater Victoria

Next Step ...Family Networks
Each unit has a volunteer
Family Network Representative
who has a military member posted to that unit. This individual volunteers their time to keep families and loved ones up to date on what is happening within the MFRC and the greater community.

Some of the information you will receive from your rep is :

Next Step...Pre-Deployment Briefing
Next you will want to attend your unit's Pre-Deployment Briefing.
