Customs and courtesies in the Air Force need our attention

January 9, 2014

Imagine you are at work standing around and talking with your co-workers. An individual, in uniform, walks by with their hand in their pocket. Or maybe they walk by talking on their cell phone or with their PT shirt not tucked in. What do you do? Are you someone who will turn the other way and pretend you didn’t notice, or are you the type to walk up to that person and professionally correct them?

Crosswalk awareness is a public awareness and knowledge of laws governing the use of crossing roads. A crosswalk or pedestrian crossing is a designated point on a road at which some means are employed to assist pedestrians wishing to cross.

Security forces advise vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle users to acknowledge and to be aware of their responsibilities of new and current crosswalks around Hill Air Force Base. With so much construction at Hill, it is important that everyone is aware of new locations.



Keep a grip on winter driving hazards

November 24, 2010

Winter is the most difficult driving season. Not only do you have snow and ice to deal with, but there are fewer hours of daylight as well.

As winter weather arrives, make sure your vehicle is in good condition. Make sure you have good snow tires and put them on early to avoid preventable accidents -- you don't want to get caught without them in the first snowfall. Never combine radial and non-radial tires on the same vehicle. On front-wheel drive cars, it's best to put snow tires or "all-season" tires on all four wheels, not just the front.
