Issue Summary

Family Care Plan Provider Access to Military Installations

Issue Number 519
Status Completed
Issue Title Family Care Plan Provider Access to Military Installations
Scope In the post 9/11 security environment, some care providers are denied installation access. Installations have unique access procedures, which are often unfamiliar to unit commanders. Family care providers without ID cards require access to installations/facilities, regardless of geographical location or branch of service, to properly carry out their responsibilities. This denied access causes breakdowns in Family Care Plan effectiveness, depriving family members of critical needs.
Issue Recommendation Streamline local access procedures for Family Care Plan providers. Educate unit commanders, soldiers, DoD civilians, and family members of installation access process.
Military Component Active and Reserve Components
Demographic Group Family Members, Caregivers
Subject Area Family Support
Geographic Area Universal
Entered AFAP Nov 2002
Final Action Date Jan 2006
Accomplishments The Office of the Provost Marshal General released a message to the field in Sep 05 stating that commanders have authority to issue temporary car decals and identification cards to caregivers. With the decal and identification card, caregivers should be able to access Army installations. Subsequent data calls indicate significantly fewer access issues than in the past. Continual education will take place at pre-command courses of these new procedures.
