Hill lands ‘excellent’ rating

November 11, 2010

After a rigorous 12-day evaluation, Team Hill received its Operational Readiness Inspection results on Monday. 

Inspectors from Air Force Materiel Command and Air Combat Command were here Oct. 28 through Nov. 8 to evaluate the base on its ability to deploy, respond to contingency situations, and survive and operate in a wartime environment.

Early voting encouraged

October 21, 2010

All base employees participating in the Operational Readiness Inspection Nov. 1-9 are encouraged to take advantage of the early voting program. Voters should be aware that, due to the ORI, base roads and gates could be congested on Nov. 2, General Election Day.

The early voting program will last through Oct. 29, with the polls remaining open for a minimum of four hours. Polls will close no later than 5 p.m. on the last day of early voting. 

All nonessential personnel should avoid the base if possible Nov. 1-6

October 7, 2010

All those not working at Hill Air Force Base are being asked to avoid accessing the base, Nov. 1-6, if at all possible during the Operational Readiness Inspection. Interruptions in service normally expected during an ORI are predicted to be especially frequent during that period.

During the ORI, scheduled Oct. 28 through Nov. 8,

the gate and certain base services may experience periodic delays or unexpected closures. All nonessential personnel should avoid accessing the base during the ORI to avoid interruptions in base services normally available to them.

History holds the key for success during ORI

October 13, 2010

What you are about to read may sound like a history lesson. But after reading various accounts of the Revolutionary War, I've found it is amazingly applicable to the next two months as the 419th Fighter Wing and its Team Hill counterparts prepare for the upcoming Operational Readiness Inspection.

Chief Nordel: You are in the game

October 7, 2010

Team Hill, as we get ready for our upcoming Operational Readiness Inspection it is important to remember that we all, everyone working here, have a part in preparing our wartime readiness. We will be evaluated on antiterorism/force protect -- maybe requiring you to evacuate a building, take shelter or simulate 911 calls. Any of you could get the inspectors' input (card) ... any of you can affect the image shown to our headquarters.

ORI-style AAA safety not so boring

August 19, 2010


Another boring safety article? I hope not. I’ll try my best to deliver some critical safety material in an interesting fashion; a challenge by anyone’s standards. And who knows, this information may help you enjoy a fun, safe and successful Operational Readiness Inspection. (Read that successful ORI as a “Pass.”) “FUN. Whatchu talking about Willis?”
