ACS to host conference, special events, shares program news

The Committee for the Prevention of Child Abuse, CPCA, and Army Community Service, ACS, will host the 19th Annual Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Conference in observance of Child Abuse Prevention Month. It will be held March 28, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., at Cochise College Sierra Vista Campus, 901 North Colombo Ave.

The 2014 Department of the Army’s slogan is “Children’s Safety Comes First — Be Ready to End Child Abuse.” The keynote speaker, Mildred Muhammad, is a survivor of domestic violence and had her children kidnapped by her ex-husband. After 18 months, she was able to locate them and get full custody. Muhammad spent many years supporting and caring for her children as they worked through the trauma and the publicity of the actions of their father, the DC Sniper, John Allen Muhammad.

Other guest speakers include Diedra Calcote, acting Child Welfare Program administrator, Division of Child Safety and Family Services, and Linda Lopez, former Arizona Senator, District 29.

For registration information call 533.3986.

EFMP — overseas screening processes

The Army Exceptional Family Member Program, or EFMP, is comprised of three components — ACS/Medical/Personnel. Each component plays an integral role to ensure program success. When a Soldier who is not enrolled in the EFMP receives an overseas assignment, they also need to know that the EFMP impacts them as well.

All Soldiers reassigned outside the continental U.S, OCONUS, including Alaska and Hawaii, and seeking command sponsorship must complete Medical EFMP Overseas Screening for all Family members even if Family members aren’t currently enrolled in the EFMP.

Many OCONUS locations have limited access to specialized care, and the overseas screening process ensures the needs of their Family members are identified and can be accommodated by the gaining command before Family travel is authorized.

Soldiers completing the On Line Levy Briefing are required to submit a DA Form 7415, EFMP Querying Sheet, to ACS EFMP.

Not all students have access to the On Line Levy Briefing so it’s important they get the word from their leaders about the overseas screening requirement.

Upon receipt of the emailed DA 7415, the ACS EFMP System Navigator provides information to Soldiers including information on the overseas screening process and contact information for the Raymond W. Bliss Army Health Center, or RWBAHC, EFMP special needs advisor.

Don’t wait to initiate the overseas screening process. This should be one of the first things a Soldier does when notified of OCONUS assignment instructions. Delays can occur if Family members require updated physical examinations or have other medical-related issues. Also, there is only one Medical EFMP representative to complete the required forms so, if the representative is away from the office for an extended period, the process will be delayed.

Those with medical-related EFMP questions or who need to initiate Medical Overseas Screening should contact the RWBACH EFMP special needs advisor at 533.9472. Obtain online instructions on this process at http://rwbach.huachuca.amedd.army.mil/efmp.html.

For information on how ACS EFMP can assist Families enrolled in the EFMP to transitioning to the next duty station, contact ACS, 533.2330.
