From the commander: Fort Huachuca’s 101 Critical Days of Summer Safety Stand Down May 29 – 30

ROBERT P. ASHLEY
Major General, USA Commanding

The 101 Critical Days of Summer safety campaign is intended to remind us of the hazards specific to summer weather, longer daylight hours and increased leisure activity from Memorial Day through Labor Day. To ensure we have the information needed to protect our most valuable resource, our personnel, the Fort Huachuca Safety Office, in partnership with the Army Substance Abuse Program, will sponsor the 2014 101 Critical Days of Summer Safety Stand Down.

The safety stand down will be held at Barnes Field House, May 29 – 30, from 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. This year’s events include the safety comedy show, “Comedy is the Cure,” presented by Bernie McGrenahan twice each day at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. In addition to unit and vendor safety booths, we will feature exhibits covering such topics as fire prevention, weapons safety and a drunk driving safety course.

Commanders and directors will ensure that all Soldiers and Department of the Army Civilians attend the expo. Family members are strongly encouraged to attend. Soldiers and DA Civilians attending will receive credit for one hour of drug and alcohol education training. Individuals unable to attend the expo will be able to complete the “101 Critical Days of Summer” online safety briefing at http://ikn.army.mil from June 4 through Sept. 30.

My expectations during this critical summer period are zero preventable fatalities and zero accidents resulting in permanent disability to our Soldiers, Family members and Civilians. As we kick off the “101 Critical Days of Summer” and increase our outdoor activities, I encourage each of you to make good decisions and avoid the pitfalls which typically involve alcohol abuse, indisciplined drivers or risk takers.

Take advantage of the program and offerings May 29 – 30 and, as always, stay safe!
