Lost/stolen IDs must be reported

There are new procedures in place for reporting lost or stolen Common Access Cards at Hill Air Force Base.

The cards, used by Team Hill members to enter the base and access computer networks, are controlled documents that contain personal information.

As soon as the discovery is made that a card has been lost or stolen, members must report the issue to the 75th Security Forces Squadron Pass and Identification Office or Emergency Communications Center at 801-777-3056. 

They must then visit the 75th Security Forces Squadron in Building 408 and fill out an Air Force Form 1168, explaining the circumstances surrounding the lost or stolen card. 

The Form 1168 is required before users can have a new card issued by customer service at the Force Support Squadron in Building 430. Two forms of current federal ID are also required to have a new card issued (passport, driver’s license, social security card, etc.).

For more information, contact the 75th Force Support Squadron Customer Support  at 801-777-1845, option 3.

Base installs traffic lights at South Gate

Hill Air Force Base will flip the switch on newly installed traffic lights at the intersection of South Gate Boulevard and Balmer Street Dec. 3.

The lights, located just inside the base’s South Gate, are scheduled to be activated at noon. Base officials said the traffic signals were installed to allow better vehicle control for inbound, outbound and left-hand turns.

What motorists need to know:

- Inbound motorists intending to make northbound to westbound turn movements from South Gate Boulevard on to Balmer Street should use the newly established turn “pockets.” Vehicles will not be allowed to turn without using these established turn pockets.

- With the installation of the lights, a dedicated “free right” turn lane still exists for motorists making eastbound to southbound turn movements from Balmer Street onto South Gate Boulevard exiting the base. With the free right turn lane, drivers should yield, but it remains legal to turn right from Balmer Street onto South Gate Boulevard without stopping. This lane should only be used by motorists intending to make southbound to westbound turn movements from South Gate Boulevard on to State Route 193.

Authorities said it will take some time to program the light sequencing with respect to the traffic flow. Drivers are asked to be patient during this adjustment period. For more information, visit www.hill.af.mil.
