Having fun in the summer sun is one of the activities Airmen enjoy when the weather starts to warm up, but the heat is nothing to joke around with and should be taken seriously.

There are multiple ways to prepare before spending time outside during the summer months. Proper clothing, sunscreen and hydration are just a few ways to get ready for fun in the sun.

"The heat claims more lives annually than any other natural hazard in the world," said U.S. Air Force 1st Lt. Victoria Bobo, 23d Operations Support Squadron Weather Operations Flight commander.

The Sun Does Feel Good…

This post was originally published by Moody Air Force Base - Moody News

June 19, 2013 in Georgia, Moody Air Force Base by clevine

As with all things in life, the good must be taken with the bad, and the sun is no exception to this rule. The sun allows life to flourish on our blue planet. However, the ultraviolet (UV) radiation it emits can be harmful to skin and eyes.
 
From 1970 to 2009, the rate of skin cancer, specifically melanoma - the most deadly type in the U.S., has increased in women by 800 percent and in men by 400 percent. This is a troubling thought considering that most people spend much of their day indoors. Despite this knowledge, some may say, "I don't care. A little sun never hurt anybody."

The reporting of injuries is meant to help improve conditions for Team Moody, especially during the summer months.

New name brings changes for playgroup

This post was originally published by Moody Air Force Base - Moody News

June 4, 2013 in Georgia, Moody Air Force Base by clevine

The interactive playgroup formerly known as Tater Tots has been renamed to Moody Family Connections Playgroup in an effort to reach more children and families.

The newly renamed playgroup is designed to show more of a family aspect. A change of the name isn't the only thing that's different. The playgroup has also added some new activities for the children such as games, sing along, dancing and playtime.

"While changing the name I also looked into adding 4 year olds to the group's original ages of 6 months to 3 years old," said Windy Scott, 23d Force Support Squadron Exceptional Family Member Program coordinator. "Allowing children 4 years of age to participate gives us more time to watch how the children interact and behave before they get to school."
