E STABLISHE D 1887


MFRC launches Emergency Family Plan Peter Mallett Lookout Newspaper Family emergencies often strike with little or no warning. If military members are out-of-town or on deployment when the unexpected happens to a family member, who would they call for help? Would they have access to timely assistance from friends or family in the area? If there are children or dependent adults, who would they turn to? These are questions the Esquimalt Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) is encouraging military families to consider as they fill out an Emergency Family Plan for their household. The four-page Emergency Family Plan document was launched by the MFRC in November 2018. It is meant to be kept in a highly visible or familiar place in the home, and shared with the people listed in the plan. In case of an emergency it provides access to vital information including: contact information for family

members, care coordinators, emergency contacts, emergency child care providers, and detailed information about the children, including school or daycare contacts, medical information, special needs individuals and their daily routines, and detailed information about dependant adults and family pets. In the past the MFRC was able to provide assistance in the first 72 hours of an emergency, but, for a variety of reasons including limitations from community providers, they may not be able to provide emergency care in those first three days. In the case of an emergency, it is up to you to have a workable emergency family plan, says Cheryl MacQueen, MFRC Esquimalt social worker. “In the past, people may have thought of the MFRC as their backup plan,” said MacQueen. “We can work with you to put a plan together and problem solve who you’d turn to in an emergency. Upon assessment, we may be able to provide some emergency respite child

care. We are encouraging families to proactively plan for all emergencies whether they are deploying or not.” Military members are already required to fill out basic emergency contact information through the Department of National Defence Family Care Plan. The MFRC’s Emergency Family Plan goes into more detail and covers things you may have not considered. “The staff at the MFRC can work with families to help develop a plan, and look at options and contacts in their community that they may not have thought of,” explains Colleen Cahoon, MFRC Esquimalt Family Navigator Program coordinator. “We encourage those who need assistance completing the plan to book an appointment with us.” She also advises families to communicate with the contacts on their list and let them know they may be called upon in case of an emergency. Hard copies of the document are available at the front desk of the MFRC’s Signal Hill location in Esquimalt and the Colwood Pacific Activity Centre (CPAC). The Emergency Family Plan document is also available online at their website esquimaltmfrc.com/emergencyplan. If you need assistance developing the plan, call the MFRC at 250-3632640 to book an appointment.

Sailing CFSA Summer “Learn To Sail” Program Learn to Sail at the Canadian Forces Sailing Association! We offer courses for Youth and Adults of all ages, from beginner to advanced. CFSA is a wonderful place to learn to sail, with favourable winds and a protected harbour. Sharing a harbour with the Naval Dockyard, there are always exciting things happening in the bay. Our one and two week programs are a great way for kids, adults and families to enjoy their summer learning on the water! Our instructors are nationally certified through Sail Canada and trained in how to teach sailing, as well as first aid and boat rescue. We follow the Sail Canada CANSail curriculum of instruction. CANSail is designed to be a set of progressive learn to sail standards focused on providing sailors with a solid foundation of core skills. It allows sailors to learn and progress in any type of boat and consolidates key skills and solid experiences before adding complex skills. If a course isn’t running when you want to register for it, please contact us and we will see if there is an equivalent or way to get you sailing that week. You are not required to work for DND nor be a member of CFSA to take part in our summer Learn To Sail program, but you will probably find that you enjoy sailing so much that you will want to join and benefit from the perks of membership! Did You Know? High School students with 100 or more hours of Sailing Instruction can apply for 4 high school credits! Ask us how!

If you are interested in this please email us a week before your course or talk to the Head Instructor on the first morning during registration

What to Expect Expect to go sailing on your first day and every day, rain or shine. The weather can be varied on the water so please come prepared with a hat, sunscreen, wind-breaker, change of clothes, towel, lunch, snacks and plenty of drinking water. Only close-toed shoes are allowed on the docks and in the boats. Safety (i.e. bike) helmets are required for all students under 16, unless a waiver is signed by the parent. We have a few helmets available but you are encouraged to send your child with their own that fits them and they are comfortable with. PFD’s are supplied, but feel free to bring your own. A Parent/Guardian must attend the first class to sign necessary waivers.

CLUBS Model Railroad Club The model Railway Club started as an N Scale (1/160) NTRAK modular layout in December 1997. Currently the NTRAK layout is 30 plus feet by 40 plus feet. These modules are continuously updated as new techniques and experiences are gained including Digital Command Control (DCC) systems. The N Scale layout is currently completing conversion to DCC but this does not preclude DC locomotives from being run on the layout. The HO Scale (1/87) modular layout is also 30 plus by 40 plus feet and has completed conversion to DCC. Again this does not preclude DC locomotives from enjoying the wonders of the layout. Some of these modules depict logging operations, mining operations and a locomotive servicing facility. Both of these layouts have been on public display and have won multiple awards as “Best Operating Layout”, “Favourite Operating Layout”; and “Best Module” at train shows in Victoria and Nanaimo. Our layout at “Christmas in the Village” is the perennial favourite display at the Saanich Historical Artefacts Society Christmas presentation.

The Club actively participates each year in the Victoria Train Show, Westshore Town Centre Hobby Show, Nanaimo Regional Train Show, Esquimalt Buccaneer Days, MARPAC Expo and the West Coast Welcome. All Active or retired military members, DND and other Government employees are welcome and invited to join the CFB Esquimalt Model Railway Club. We also are allowed limited numbers of others who do not meet the previously noted requirements as well as

And for those wanting to learn to ride from scratch: We are now affiliated with “Learn to Ride” (a motorcycle training company that teaches new riders), who provide Club members with a discount on training courses. They provide the bikes; you simply provide the enthusiasm to learn. Club members are proud of the CAF, enthusiastic members of the community, and staunchly promote SAFE driving habits. We are motorcycle enthusiasts with a zest for group riding! CAF, DND, Spouse, or Dependant: Regardless of bike type - try us out!
