Operation READY Handbooks:

Family Readiness Group

A Family Readiness Group is a command-sponsored organization of Soldiers, civilian employees, Family Members (immediate and extended) and volunteers belonging to a unit. FRGs will provide mutual support and assistance, and a network of communications among the Family Members, the chain of command, and community resources. FRGs will assist unit commanders in meting military and personal deployment preparedness and enhance the family readiness of the unit’s Soldiers and families. They will also provide feedback to the command on the state of the unit "family."

FRG training is offered one-on-one or in a group setting. You may contact the ACS Center to schedule training or to register for a class. FRG training includes an overview of the FRG, effective leadership, money matters, and volunteerism. Key Caller and Chain of Concern training by appointment.
