ACTION LINE: Safe transportation of private firearms

July 30, 2015

Q: I have a question in regard to Hill AFB instruction 31-206, specifically, paragraph 5.1: I have a concealed carry permit issued by the state of Utah and I live in base housing. I also ride a three-wheeled motorcycle. Paragraph 5.1 prohibits me from transporting my weapon in my motorcycle from my home while going on or off base. My question then is, how do I legally transport my weapon when going on or off base? Thank you for your attention to this matter.

I really shouldn't be here

February 12, 2015

Holidays offer us time for reflection

December 19, 2013

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio — As the holidays approach, it’s a fitting time to reflect on the past year. With all of the budget cuts/uncertainties and the corresponding furloughs and recent force management announcements, 2013 was a year filled with many challenges.

Neubauer: Stay Safe 'n Sound, All Year Round

August 1, 2013

As your new Air Force Chief of Safety, my sole purpose is to preserve our most critical asset — you! We’re halfway through the Critical Days of Summer campaign, an important milestone since we’ve historically seen an upsurge in fatalities in the second half of the season.

We can help turn this trend around by keeping a strong safety outlook — in the air, on the ground, all the time. We Airmen are aggressive by nature, and risk is inherent in our mission. But there’s a difference between being aggressive and being reckless.

The base's third annual "See Me, Save Me" motorcycle safety campaign is set to begin with a motorcycle ride on Wednesday, June 13. The campaign aims to encourage motor vehicle operators to be on the lookout for motorcycles on the road.

Winter safety protects Hill's valuable team player - you!

January 19, 2012

The great state of Utah proudly boasts itself as having the "Greatest Snow on Earth." Those of us fortunate enough to live and work along the Wasatch Front are afforded magnificent views, as well as world-class winter activities such as skiing and snowboarding. While winter is a beautiful time of year, it is also the most perilous time of year for our employees. Walking on snow and ice is especially dangerous.
