2013 Critical Days of Summer, Week 9: Staying cool in Montana waters

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

July 19, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

Montana is home to thousands of ponds, lakes, creeks and rivers and is a haven to various water sports throughout the summer months. Flat waters offer those who own a boat or jet ski the opportunity to enjoy some fun and adventure. Others take pleasure in an afternoon swim or a daylong float. For those of who can be found on or in the water this time of year, it's important to understand the risks of being in an environment that cannot always be control.

Although water seems calm and still at times, it is quite dangerous and can be very unpredictable. In creeks and rivers, currents can sweep people away and under the water, while boaters and jet skiers often cannot spot sand bars or submerged timber. In lakes, depths can change suddenly due to drop-offs, increasing the risk of drowning for those who are not capable swimmers. Never venture out in the water alone and always have a life vest.

It was 6:30 a.m. as hundreds of Airmen in Air Force physical training uniforms made their way to the Malmstrom Air Force Base flightline July 3 for the first of three base-wide fun runs. While some opted to run the 1.5-mile course, others tested their limits in the 5K course.

"We're here to restart the wing runs because I think that they are not only a lot of fun, but it's important to get the family together," said Col. Marné Deranger, 341st Missile Wing vice commander. "[It is a good way to] enjoy the camaraderie, kick off the holiday weekend, and just remind ourselves that physical fitness isn't just fun, it's a key component to us being able to do our jobs."

For Airman 1st Class Jake Bush, 341st Missile Maintenance Squadron electro-mechanical technician, July 1 was a seemingly normal Monday.

Just hours after completing a CPR refresher training course, Bush was put in an unlikely situation which required him to put his skills to good use.

He rescued three people from the Missouri River in Ulm, Mont.

A native of Randolph, N.Y., Bush set his eyes on fishing on Holter Lake, Craig, Mont., but at 9 p.m., he settled for the short trip to Ulm. Within 10 minutes of reaching the first access spot underneath the Ulm Bridge, Bush noticed something was wrong.

More than 35 educators visited Malmstrom Air Force Base on June 18 to gain knowledge about World War II and Cold War history.

"In Montana, an elementary teacher only has to have three credits of history in college," said Danice Toyias, Montana Council for History and Civics Education deputy director, a non-profit that partners with Montana schools to provide professional development to teachers. "As a history civics group we think it's important that history teachers are well educated. With this grant we can provide so much content to improve on how they develop lessons and activities."

Maintaining motorcycle master in Montana

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

June 27, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

With warmer weather, more and more people are trading in their four-wheeled escorts for a two-wheeled version. A motorcycle is a fun alternative to taking a drive in a sedan or station wagon. However, before you jump on your bike and tour the countryside, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First, you must be legal. You must meet the requirements of both the state in which you are driving and the Air Force. Montana requires a motorcycle endorsement on a Montana driver's license or a motorcycle license from another state to operate a motorcycle on Montana's roads. If you cannot obtain a motorcycle license from your state of residence, then you will need to surrender your current license and get a Montana driver's license with a motorcycle endorsement.
