Team Malmstrom members enjoyed food, games and company at Sun Plaza Park on Aug. 23 during Malmstrom Air Force Base's annual base picnic. Airmen who attended had a chance to lay down the tools of their trade for a couple hours and relax during the event.

"I had a good time with everyone," said Airman 1st Class Alan Chongcarbo, 341st Civil Engineer Squadron technician. "It's good to be able to spend some time outside of the shop with friends and coworkers. One of the things I enjoyed the most was the classic cars; the free food was also a plus."

Back to school safety: Watch out for children

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

August 30, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

School is in session and though different age groups have different opinions on this momentous occasion, the time is coming where adults within the Air Force Global Strike Command Airmen need to watch out for children.

Getting to school is very much a point of interest concerning the safety of children. Children should be taught to obey all traffic signs and to not play in the street while waiting for the bus. Parents should be aware of the route required for children to get to the bus or school. Getting out to learn that procedure is also a great opportunity to bond with little ones. Also, parents should be aware that lots of drivers don't have children and have no idea that school is in session. Taking a proactive approach and teaching children to expect the worst can help them mitigate the risks of getting to school. Be aware of the speed limit in those areas and pay attention for school buses that have stopped and have flashing lights. Remember that many mishaps occu

Malmstrom Air Force Base Airmen stepped out of their boots and onto their two-wheeled summer pastime to attend the Rolling Thunder motorcycle safety event held at the old Base Exchange parking lot Aug. 27.

The event, focused on promoting the dos and don'ts of motorcycle safety, included several activities to raise motorcycle safety awareness for riders and the drivers of four-wheeled vehicles they share the roads with.

"The Rolling Thunder motorcycle safety event is just to kind of raise awareness with the base populace that we're out here on motorcycles and to keep an eye out for us and also to promote mentorship and rider safety in the motorcycle community," said Tech. Sgt. Lincoln Seals, 341st Civil Engineer Squadron fire fighter and squadron motorcycle safety representative. "If you don't ride, the goal is to understand how many of us on base actually ride motorcycles and to pay attention and avoid that 'I never saw him' phrase when someone gets into

Labor Day: Think before you drive

August 29, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

Labor Day weekend is here, and even with the increasing costs of fuel, drivers will be taking to the nation's roadways in record numbers this year. But this is not about how many millions of drivers will drive billions of miles over this holiday weekend; this focuses on you. When you are on the road, you are the one and only thing you can control.

The only thing you control is your own actions. You make the decisions where to go, when to go, how fast or slow, and whether to break the rules or obey the rules. When you drive, you are making the choices that affect your safety, your family's safety and the safety of drivers around you. Your actions affect the driving community, or the drivers sharing the road with you.

A race to the finish

Sometimes Airmen can learn important lessons about how to handle what life throws at them through sports. For instance, when they just begin to see the finish line after running a grueling 5K, 10K or half marathon and need all the wheel-power they have left to cross it, or when they feel overwhelmed from the pressure of everything falling on their shoulders, yet they keep their wits about themselves and perform exceptionally. Many things can affect someone whether they have been a life-long athlete or just a one-time competitor, and many things can be used as learning tools to become the best at everything they do.

In recent years, an explosion of extreme sports has offered individuals the opportunity to test their physical and mental capabilities. For many "adrenaline junkies," free time is spent sky diving, bungee jumping, white water rafting or doing other hair-raising activities. While all of us need to find a way to blow off steam or get our thrills, we must understand that taking part in these events carries a much higher risk of "extreme" injuries. Taking a few extra steps prior to partaking in these activities will assure that participants will walk away safely, ready to tackle the next challenge.
