Preparing for emergenciesPreparing for emergencies
Preparing for emergencies

September is National Preparedness Month and it is encouraged for every Airman to be prepared before disaster strikes. A critical part of being prepared is having a basic emergency supply kit on hand in the event an unforeseen incident takes place. According to Ready.gov, a basic emergency supply kit includes water, non-perishable food, a battery-powered radio, flashlight with batteries, first-aid kit, can opener, any needed medications, and any additional items the specific household may need. It is also crucial to place the supplies together and keep them fresh, so they are safe to use when needed. Since disasters can strike at any time or place it is imperative to have an emergency kit at home, work and in vehicles. Investing in preparation could be the key in staying safe during a disaster. The appearance of products in this image does not constitute any federal endorsement. (U.S. Air Force photo illustration by Airman 1st Class Mikaley Towle)

Look before you step

As summer vacation comes to an end for students, our puppet friend Dirk Donhopper reminds school children to look both ways before entering into school zone crosswalks. Clark County schools reopen for the 2014-15 school year Aug. 25. Drivers are reminded to obey speed limits when in a school zones or school crossing zones, and to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. Nevada State Law establishes speed limits in School Zones in front of schools at 15 mph and School Crossing Zones, crossings to and from, but not directly in front of a school at 25 mph. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department issued the following back-to-school safety reminder; stay alert at crosswalks, stop when school bus lights are flashing and remind drivers school-zone speeding fines start at $190.

Wake up: Don't drive while tired

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 100,000 police reported crashes are the direct result of driver fatigue each year. This equals to 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries, and $12.5 billion in monetary losses. Although there are many studies about driving while fatigued, there are no tests to determine if a person is tired like there is for drinking and driving. Airmen are reminded to get enough sleep so they are not tired behind the wheel. Don’t become another statistic! (U.S. Air Force photo illustration by Senior Airman Jason Couillard)

Grilling: prevent damage and injury by keeping it safeGrilling: prevent damage and injury by keeping it safe
Grilling: prevent damage and injury by keeping it safe

Every summer, people across the country get out their grills to barbeque food. Along with this fun tradition comes many potential fire and other safety hazards. According to the National Fire Protection Association, gas grills constitute a higher fire risk and between 2007 and 2011, they were involved in an annual average of 7,200 home fires. In December 2012, ESPN SportsCenter anchor Hannah Storm was badly burned while grilling. The NFPA website stated Storm suffered first and second-degree burns on her face, neck, chest and hands when she attempted to re-ignite a flame after the wind had blown it out and caused propane gas to pool and become an explosion hazard. The NFPA suggests these safety tips: propane gas and charcoal grills should only be used outdoors. The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings, and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. Keep children and pets away from the grill area. Never leave your grill unattended. (U.S. Air Force photo illustration by Airman 1st Class Thomas Spangler)

As summer temperatures soar into the high 100s, vacations and road trips are becoming more necessary in order to escape the blistering heat. It is important to remember to be fully prepared before driving any kind of distance. According to the National Highway Traffic safety Administrations website, even well-maintained vehicles can break down. Before getting on the road it is important to check the vehicles fluids, tires, and lights to make sure it is safe to drive. It is also important to make sure all the necessary items are available in order to ensure a safe trip such as; an emergency phone, first aid kit, spare tire and a full tank of gas. Members of the Nellis Air Force Base community are encouraged to take all of these precautionary steps to have a safe travel. (U.S. Air Force illustration by A1C Rachael Loftis)

Swimming safety serious every single summer

Airmen are reminded to take all precautionary swimming safety steps prior to jumping in the pool, lake or ocean this summer. According to the National Safety Council, preparation is important for all sporting activities, but especially for swimming since drowning accounts for approximately 3,500 deaths every year. Airmen should also refrain from swimming intoxicated as alcohol can affect judgment and body temperature, impairing one’s ability to swim. Children must also be closely monitored around the water, because one in five drowning victims are children 14 years old and younger. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Siuta B. Ika)
