The Exceptional Family Member Program identifies sponsors of family members with special medical, medically related, and educational needs.
The program ensures Exceptional Family Members and sponsors who require ongoing specialized medical care are located within major medical treatment facility areas.
The Navy encourages sponsor EFMP enrollment at least 10 months prior to a Permanent Change of Station (PCS) move so the detailer will have time to work with the sponsor and pinpoint the best possible assignment to meet both Navy and family special needs.
Please contact the EFM Coordinator, at (775) 426-3792 or (775) 426-3188 for more information about this program.
