Dempsey III, Nevada Test and Training Range commander, during the Prisoner of War and Missing in Action Recognition Ceremony at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., Sept. 19, 2014. Whitaker, who served in the U.S. Army Air Corps’ 603rd Bomb Squadron as a bombardier and navigator, was completing a mission over Merseburg, Germany when his B-17 was shot down on Nov. 2, 1944, and was subsequently held as a POW for seven months.

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 stepLook before you step
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. Police officers from North Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Henderson and the Clark County School District will be enforcing traffic laws in school zones. (U.S. Air Force illustration by Lorenz Crespo)

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)
