KIRTLAND AIR FORCE BASE, N.M (AFNS) — May 25th marked the first day of the Critical Days of Summer safety campaign. The summer is a welcome time of year marked by warmer weather and increased participation in outdoor activities. Unfortunately, it’s historically the time of year when the Air Force experiences disproportionately more mishaps and fatalities off duty.

To enhance awareness of risk management decision-making and offset the chance of mishaps, the Air Force Safety Center announced the Critical Days of Summer public webpage to help everyone enjoy a mishap-free summer. In addition to tools and features, this one-stop resource contains videos with important messages for all Airmen.

“Remember to dive into your summer off-duty activities with a clear eye toward safely returning to duty,” said Bill Parsons, Air Force chief of ground safety.

“Every Airmen is precious and every fatality is one too many!” safety center officials said. “Please enjoy your summer and make the choice to go into the fall with warm memories of the decisions you made and the time you had. Spread the word to prevent mishaps.”
