This year, the 355th Fighter Wing Safety Office is throwing together the annual 101 Critical Days of Summer campaign at the Mirage Club on May 24 from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The 101 Critical days of summer officially started May 25 and ends Sept. 4.
â€œOur goal for this campaign is to reduce or eliminate preventable mishaps through providing safety education,â€ said Tech. Sgt. Kevin Armstrong, 355th Fighter Wing ground safety non-commissioned officer. â€œThe Desert Lightning Team will learn about safety topics ranging from pool safety, fall protection, texting while driving and much more.â€
The event consists of safety demonstrations, safety information and prizes to encourage participants. Additionally, there is a mass motorcycle mentorship safety ride.
All educational materials for 101 Critical Days of Summer can be found on Sharepoint.
â€œThe 355th Fighter Wing ground safety office has created posters, brochures, powerpoints and helpful information for each week of â€˜Safety – Itâ€™s Personalâ€™, for your use in prevention efforts,â€ said Armstrong. â€œWe hope to make this a mishap-free summer season.â€
