According to the National Fire Protection Association, grill fires on residential properties result in an estimated average of 10 deaths, 140 injuries and $75 million in property loss each year. To make sure your next barbecue doesn't go up in flames, the Fire and Emergency Services, Fire Prevention Office recommends the following safety tips:
  • Designate the grilling area a "no play zone" and keep kids and pets away until grill equipment is completely cool
  • Before using, position your grill at least 10 feet away from other objects, including the house, base facilities, house awnings on porches, and any shrubs or bushes (REF: AFI 32-2001_341MWSUP_I, paragraph 3.3.5.2.14.8)

  • Only use starter fluid made for barbecue grills when starting a fire in a charc

"We wanted to set any Airman up for success within their BTZ window," said Tech. Sgt. Elizabeth Ayala, 819th RED HORSE Squadron materials testing NCO in charge and program lead. "This session was purposely scheduled before packages go up to the boards."

Everyone has ups and downs, and everyone comes to a point in their life when they need a helping hand. Sometimes when Airmen feel that they've come to the end of their rope they just have to get back up, brush themselves off and keep on pushing.

Robi Powers, founder of the American300 Never Quit Series tours, brought Devon Harris, a retired Jamaican army captain and member of the first Jamaican bobsled team, to accompany him on a tour of Malmstrom Air Force Base from June 10 to 12.

It's those three months - give or take with weather - where Airmen are getting outside enjoying the sun and warm temperatures Montana has to offer. While it's easy to say Montana has the views to leave anyone breathless in the summer, some people may not know exactly what this state has to offer or the activities Malmstrom Air Force Base provides to help Airmen enjoy Big Sky Country.

Below outlines a few of the many outdoor summer activities Malmstrom has to offer to Airmen and their families.

Summer moving season in full swing

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

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

Are you moving from within the CONUS this summer? If yes, be aware the peak summer move season is in full swing. The DoD expects the largest volume of requests for property movement to occur from May 1 to July 31.

Much like last season, the entire DoD is competing with the private sector to secure Transportation Service Providers to pack and pick up personal property shipments. We are currently under the 21-day rule and some areas are under a 30-day rule, which means we need 21 to 30 days advance notice before a carrier will move your shipment.

Stone cold sober

How often do you think about the real choices you have when it comes to alcohol? It's much more than just "should I or shouldn't I drink?" Choosing to use or not to use alcohol is a personal choice for which each Airman is responsible. At any age, we are responsible for the consequences of our decisions. Before you decide whether or not to include alcohol in your activity, consider all the implications.

Do you consider alcohol necessary to have a good time? Many people think alcohol is a complement to social events, good food and conversation with friends or family. Even if this is what you think, you must be prepared with a plan to prevent a mishap. What does that mean? It means not only having the plan, but knowing it is your responsibility to follow through with the plan. Use your designated driver; sleep over at your friend's house; call a taxi or simply don't drink.

Eyes on the prize: Private organization fundraiser support

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

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

Flower sales, mustache competitions, burrito sales and raffles; a previous article by Capt. David Dayton discussing Private Organization fundraising activities cited these as examples of activities that could be conducted here at Malmstrom Air Force Base (assuming the proper approvals are obtained in advance). So, what do they all have in common?

Aside from being designed to improve the finances of the executing PO, they also provide some sort of incentive to the participants. Whether the purchaser is receiving an item, a service or a mere opportunity to win a competition, something of value is being provided; and as you might have guessed, the Department of Defense and Air Force have issued guidance regarding where and how you're allowed to get that "something of value."

With recent changes to career job reservations and fiscal 2013 Enlisted Voluntary Force Management Programs, it is imperative for Airmen to consider their future time spent in the service. Master Sgt. Shane Schwendiman, Air National Guard in-service recruiter stationed out of McChord Air Force Base, Wa., visited Malmstrom to educate Airmen on the Palace Chase and Palace Front programs during a brief at the Education and Training Center on May 16.

Schwendiman assists Airmen from McChord, Fairchild, Kadena, Yokota, Misawa and Malmstrom Air Force Bases, in transitioning into the Air National Guard or the Air Force Reserves, anywhere in the United States.
