913 AG Family/Team, Have fun and be safe! Here are a few things to think about before you take time off during the 4th of July holiday... 1) Fireworks Safety. - Never use fireworks while impaired by drugs or alcohol - Never allow young children to handle fireworks - Older children should use them only under close adult supervision - Anyone using fireworks or standing nearby should wear protective eyewear - Never light them indoors or inside a car - Only use them away from people, houses and flammable material - Only light one device at a time and maintain a safe distance after lighting - Never ignite devices in a container - Do not try to re-light or handle malfunctioning fireworks - Soak unused fireworks in water for a few hours before discarding - Keep a bucket of water nearby to fully extinguish fireworks that don't go off or in case of fire - Better yet, grab a blanket and a patch of lawn, kick back and let the experts handle the show. As of today, there are no burn bans in Arkansas, but please make a mental note that there is a moderate wildfire danger for the following counties: Pulaski, Faulkner, White, Cleburne, Van Buren, Conway and Perry. See more at the Arkansas Forestry Commission website: https://www.ark.org/forestry_fire_info/index.php?do:showWildFires 2) Heat Stress/Sunburns. - From heat rash to heat stroke, and everything in between, know how to recognize the signs and symptoms of heat-related illnesses and what to do when you see someone exhibiting the signs. - Block out direct sun and other heat sources. Rest in the shade. - HYDRATE. HYDRATE. HYDRATE. Good ole H2O is best, but you may need to replace your electrolytes from time to time, especially if you’ve perspired too much for way too long. Avoid beverages containing alcohol or caffeine, as they tend to move water from the body. - Wear lightweight, light colored, loose-fitting clothing. - Apply appropriate SPF sunscreen before exposure to direct sunrays and re-apply often. It’s beneficial to invest in a good after sun lotion, and apply early on. - See more at: https://afrc.eim.us.af.mil/sites/913AG/SE/SEG/Seasonal%20Safety%20Briefing%20Topics/Forms/AllItems.aspx?View=%7B7E23FB69%2D2DD1%2D4C7B%2D8186%2DC658304DEC0D%7D 3) Water Safety. - Don’t Drink and Boat. You can bet the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission will be patrolling AR lakes and waterways monitoring for proper equipment and boat drivers under the influence. For more info, download the Arkansas Boating Law Handbook from: https://www.boat-ed.com/assets/pdf/handbook/ar_handbook_entire.pdf - Always wear a life jacket, especially when the boat is moving. - Know that drowning is not the violent, splashing, call for help that most people expect. In reality, drowning happens quickly and silently. There is very little splashing, no waving, and no yelling or calls for help of any kind. Look for these other signs of drowning when persons are in the water: ▪ Head low in the water, mouth at water level ▪ Head tilted back with mouth open ▪ Eyes glassy and empty, unable to focus ▪ Eyes closed ▪ Hair over forehead or eyes ▪ Not using legs – Vertical ▪ Hyperventilating or gasping ▪ Trying to swim in a particular direction but not making headway ▪ Trying to roll over on the back ▪ Appear to be climbing an invisible ladder. - Always wear a life jacket, especially when the boat is moving. Remember, it’s always better to be safe than sorry…No Regrets!! 🤔

Combat Airlifter of the Week: Maj. Pete Hughes
"WE ARE AIRMEN" Recruiting Video Contest Here is a good opportunity for our more social media savvy Airmen to get involved in recruiting. AETC and Air Force Recruiting Service are hosting a recruiting video contest, in which they're asking Airmen across the Air Force to submit their own 30-60 second videos, to create a kind of commercial that would encourage people outside of the military to become future Airmen. Contest finalists will be flown to the AFA Air, Space and Cyber Conference in September, where they'll have lunch with CMSAF Kaleth O. Wright. The best video announcement will happen during a keynote address at the conference. Additionally, the contest winner will have the opportunity to shawdow the professional marketing crew that produces the Air Force's official recruiting commercials. The competition continues until August 3. Below is a link to the contest's website, which will serve as a central hub for all things related to the contest, to include more graphics.
