Transcript

  • 1. As an officer and aviator in the U.S. Army, I — like most of you — have been exposed to a significant amount of safety training. We’ve all learned that the unseen hazard is oftentimes the most dangerous. While driving home from drill one weekend, I found myself trapped by one of winter’s unseen hazards, and it nearly cost me and another motorist our lives. The Ground Risk Assessment Tool is an interactive, automated online system developed to augment risk management planning and decision-making for ground operations. Learn the safety culture and climate within your organization with the Army Readiness Assessment Program. Before you head out into cold weather, either tactically or for recreation, take appropriate precautions. It doesn’t take a lot of exposure to the elements to take you out of commission. Trust me, I’ve been there and done that! The air ambulance business can be challenging, and sometimes I feel it doesn’t receive the recognition it deserves. Unfortunately, casualties are a part of war, so it’s absolutely necessary. This story chronicles one of my experiences in Iraq. The Know the Signs campaign is designed to heighten awareness of risk factors and provide leaders and Soldiers the tools they need to address safety issues in their unit or peer group. The signs are all around. It’s up to you to recognize and act on them.
