In this in­stall­ment of “get­ting to know CFSU(O)”, I will in­tro­duce you to the Pub­lic Af­fairs Branch, which is led by Maj David Sul­li­van and di­vided into two main ar­eas of ser­vices; Pub­lic Af­fairs (PA) and Imag­ing Ser­vices.

The PA sec­tion con­sists of one Ma­jor and two full- time civil­ian em­ploy­ees. To­gether they pro­vide com­mu­ni­ca­tions and pub­lic af­fairs ad­vice and guid­ance to the Com­man­dant and all sec­tions of CFSU(O). The team also pro­duces all of the in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal com­mu­ni­ca­tions prod­ucts for CFSU( O), in­clud­ing NCR- wide e- mail mes­sages, me­dia re­sponse lines, speeches and talk­ing points, brand­ing and mar­ket­ing sup­port, in­for­ma­tion guides such as the Wel­come to the NCR Hand­book, and the CFSU(O) DIN and In­ter­net web­sites. The PA sec­tion also works very closely with PSP to pro­duce this news­pa­per. And fi­nally, the PA sec­tion is in­stru­men­tal in or­ga­niz­ing the very pop­u­lar Take Our Kids to Work Day and Walk/ Run in Red events, as well as pro­vid­ing mar­ket­ing for Fam­ily Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Days.

Imag­ing Ser­vices pro­vides im­agery sup­port to all units in the NCR that do not have im­agery as­sets avail­able within their com­mands. Some of their cus­tomers in­clude MND, CDS, VCDS, DFL and CFSU(O). In 2013, this small sec­tion of ten pro­vided im­agery sup­port for more than 1,500 re­quests, in­clud­ing still im­agery and large for­mat print­ing. Op­er­a­tional sup­port pro­vided in their stu­dio con­sists of ID pho­tos for pass­ports and visas, of­fi­cial and me­dia por­traits, ex­ec­u­tive lith­o­graphs for dis­tri­bu­tion through­out DND / CAF and ID pho­tos for de­ploy­ing mem­bers and their de­pen­dants as re­quired. Ex­ten­sive photo cov­er­age is pro­vided for all ma­jor events in the NCR, in­clud­ing Re­mem­brance Day, the Walk/Run in Red, Fam­ily Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Days as well as the nu­mer­ous change of com­mand pa­rades, changes of ap­point­ments, vis­its by for­eign dig­ni­taries. In ad­di­tion, the sec­tion sup­ports the Guard of Hon­our news­pa­per and PSP Health Pro­mo­tion.

To learn how they can help you, please con­tact the sec­tion or visit their page on the CFSU(O) in­tranet at http://cf­­tranet-eng. aspx?page=999. Due to the nu­mer­ous de­mands re­ceived in the NCR, Imag­ing Ser­vices tech­ni­cians fre­quently work days, evening and week­ends. Please plan ahead to en­sure your re­quests will be sup­ported.

Thank you to Sabrine Barakat and WO John Ma­son for the data pro­vided.
