Chapter 1 Command, Personnel, and Family Readiness Program1. Purpose. This chapter provides detailed information on theconcepts, mission, and operation/execution of the CPFRP.2. Concept a. Our most valuable resources are the individual Sailor andtheir family. NECC’s success as a Force is inextricably linkedto the well-being and resiliency of that Sailor and their family. b. Operational readiness along with personal and familyreadiness directly affects the fundamental mission of each NECCsubordinate command. A high state of command personal and familyreadiness increases commitment, morale, focus, and resiliencythroughout the force. There is a direct correlation betweenmilitary proficiency and personal and family readiness. c. Personal and family readiness refers to the ability ofthe individual Sailor and their family to successfully balancethe challenges of a military lifestyle, family, career, andmission events. d. Both personal and family readiness are multipliers. Eachis just as important as individual or equipment readiness toinsure a Sailor is prepared for any mission from combat tohumanitarian assistance and disaster response. With families in ahigher state of readiness, individual Sailors are better able toperform their assigned missions efficiently, effectively, andsafely, thereby promoting a higher state of command readiness. e. Although the commander is responsible for ensuring theestablishment and maintenance of a CPFRP, the individual Sailoris responsible and accountable for their personal and family’sreadiness. f. By-products of a high state of personal and familyreadiness are an improved quality of life and feeling ofempowerment. While no one program can completely negate thesacrifices inherent and unavoidable in a NECC Sailor’s lifestyle,CPFRP can leverage resources and significantly mitigate many ofthe negative aspects. g.
