To the right are several links to resources that will serve as reminders about the need to mitigate risks that accompany off-duty recreation. As a command, we've suffered losses involving motorcycles and water sports in previous years, and we can't become complacent. The training required by the Department of Defense for motorcycle riders has been credited with helping reduce fatal accidents in recent years. This training will be available at a brand new motorcycle range at Fort Belvoir starting this spring. We must ensure our military riders take advantage of this and similar resources at military installations as required. Though water-related activities are also a welcome part of the spring and summer, they can be just as hazardous as driving or riding, especially when combined with alcohol. We must ensure our personnel are educated on the risks water can pose, regardless of one’s swimming ability. The Department of Defense typically experiences an increase in fatal accidents each spring; let's do our part to ensure that JFHQ-NCR/USAMDW experiences no such loss. For additional information and resources, please contact Mr. Graham Walker, JFHQ-NCR/USAMDW Safety Director at graham.k.walker.civ@mail.mil or 202-685-3015.
